Preparedness

Based on integration of historic satellite datasets acquired during major floods in different States, flood hazard map layers were prepared for Assam, Bihar, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Entire Country.

 

Early Warning

Using hydrological modelling of satellite and ground based hydro-meteorological inputs and digital elevation models, experimental spatial flood early warning systems are established for selected river reaches like Andhra Pradesh (Godavari), Odisha (Mahanadi) and Assam (Brahmaputra).

 

Response

Near real time information on flood inundation is derived on an operational basis using optical and microwave SAR data and the information is provided to the concerned departments of Kerala, Assam, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh States.
