Project title: The system of a timely prediction of flash floods based on the direct measurement of infiltration
Programme: TAČR EPSILON
Project coordinator: Výzkumný ústav meliorací a ochrany půdy, v.v.i.
Project partners: ADCIS s.r.o., FLS CULS in Prague
Project leader: doc. Ing. Jakub Štibinger, CSc.
Project schedule: 2017-2020
Total project budget: 1 800 000 CZK
The project proposes an original procedure of a timely prediction of flash floods, based on direct measurements of infiltration capability of soils taking into account the degree of saturation by previous rainfall as a main indicator of surface runoff formation risk.
It develops already aplicated scientific result (continuous infiltrometer) to a level of complex warning system, providing a sufficient time-ahead of warning against real threat of flash floods to activate crisis management systems. The aim is to increase the applicability of innovated technology in practice of institutions (CHMI), municipalities and companies.
