The Future of Hydrological Forecasting
Real-time flood forecasting is one of the most effective flood risk management measures. Many governments operate bespoke hydrological forecasting services that continuously monitor and forecast coastal and fluvial water levels.
However, given the rapid advancements in technology, such as artificial intelligence and cloud computing, as well as our changing macro environment, the big question is: how will these affect the hydrological forecasting domain?
For Deltares, they wanted to have an idea of what the world will look like in 2025 in order to guide their investment decisions and ensure that their tools and expertise remain “state-of-the-art”. In the last webinar of the series, Nadine Slootjes, manager for water operations and early warning at Deltares, described five future scenarios, sharing characteristics and insights and the way Deltares adapts their tools and expertise accordingly.
