Global hydrological forecast system goes beta

April 20th, 2015

​The eWaterCycle project team last week launched the beta preview of the eWaterCycle global hydrological forecast system. Using advanced science-based models and high performance computing, the system predicts the water availability of the land surface at a very fine scale for the coming week. This enables mitigation and management of upcoming extreme events, such as floods and droughts.
