Abstract:

Real-time data availability, continuous operation, limited processing time and decision making under uncertainty are the constraints that define the challenge of operational hydrological forecasting. In this study data interpolation, hydrological simulation and data assimilation methods are tested on those operational constraints for the Rhine basin upstream of the Dutch border. Besides conclusions on each individual topic, this leads to the conclusion that the study of the operational aspects of hydrological forecasting is a distinctive specialization in hydrologic science.
