How to improve the  management of the avalanche and drought risk?

Public bodies, such as the Great Rivers Authorities or Environmental Protection Agencies have are responsible for water resources monitoring on a regional or national scale. Their aim is to manage concessions and to foresee extreme events such as floods or droughts.

Public environmental authorities can benefit greatly from Waterjade’s analyses. How?

Thanks to real-time snow monitoring on a regional scale.

Public authorities currently rely on approaches which are mostly based on snow gauges installation or measurement campaign. Such kind of instruments can only provide point wise measurements.

This results in two major issues:

  • Snow gauges can only provide point-wise information and demand high costs for installation and maintenance;

  • In case of few measurements, which is likely to occur in Spring, the consequent modeling step to spatial distribute the information may be jeopardized.

Waterjade improves snow monitoring thanks to a combination of:

  • Physically-based modelling, that not only simulates the snow height, but also snow density and precipitation, thus making the organisation of measurement campaigns unnecessary;

  • The use of satellite data (both optical and SAR) to obtain the most accurate snow cover at any altitude and aspect;

  • It works also with few in-situ measurements.
