Floods and droughts are among the most dangerous and costly natural hazards. Within just the past 12 months, catastrophic floods have affected Pakistan, Brazil and Australia, while extreme drought is presently threatening China’s grain harvest and causing a global food price hike. The aim of HydroSpace is to significantly improve the real-time forecasting of extreme hydrological events at regional scales by combining new space-borne earth observation data with advanced numerical simulation models. HydroSpace results will support management of water-related hazards and will provide the technology for a global hydrological forecasting and early warning system.
