Land slides: Structure of extreme rain fall events and the development of a meteorological early warning system

Published: 22 December 2014

Extreme rain fall events leading to land slides in torrent catchment areas in Austria will be analysed due to their intensity, extent and duration using weather maps, satellite images, data from weather stations, INCA analysis and thunder cell tracking algorithms. And a meteorological early warning system concerning land slides will be introduced. This system uses short term precipitation forecasts and predefined thresholds for sending a SMS or Email to the user.
