The ‘Advanced Tools for pro-Active Management of Impacts and Risks Induced by Convective Weather, Heavy Rain and Flash floods in Europe’ (TAMIR) project aims to address three main challenges using innovative, state-of-the-art science, and by integrating products in existing systems.
The project works to improve existing products and tools with enhanced impact assessment and warning capacity, and deliver them through operational platforms and new web services.
The usefulness of the products and tools developed within the project for decision-making will be assessed through case study evaluations and real-time demonstrations in regional civil protection systems.
Recent progress in forecasting multi-source hazards induced by heavy rain has made it possible to draw predictions from the nowcast (several minutes). In turn, this has enabled consistent decision-making at both emergency and planning level. However, civil protection agencies still face challenges when making decisions.
Hazards induced by convective storms and heavy rains (e.g. floods) become disasters when they interact with exposed and vulnerable societal systems, e.g., human life and activities, assets, and infrastructure. Recent progress in multi-source hazard forecasting has made it possible to produce predictions from the nowcast to short-medium ranges (five days), enabling consistent decision-making at both emergency response and planning level. However, civil protection agencies still face multiple challenges hampering their active decisions.
