FEWS

The Delft Flood Early Warning System (Delft-FEWS), originally developed as a flood forecasting model, is a data and modeling platform capable of forecasting flood, drought and seasonal water resources changes. Delft-FEWS is a open collection of modules that can customized to the water management needs of a given institution, including hydrologic forecasting, water quality evaluation, and prediction of reservoir management, hydropower, groundwater and navigation effects associated with flood events.
