EFAS flood probabilities

Collection: CEMS-EFAS : European Flood Awareness System 

Description

This data set shows for all European rivers the probability (in %) of the EFAS hydrological predictions (based on the ECMWF ensembles) exceeding the EFAS 5-year return period within the forecast range (next 10 days).

This information is part of the operational suit of EFAS (www.efas.eu) and intends to provide

EFAS partners with an overview on the spatial distribution of flood probability along European rivers in order to increase awareness of possible upcoming flood situations at an early stage.

The update frequency of this data set is twice a day (00:00 and 12:00 UTC); and the spatial coverage is the extended geographic Europe, with a spatial resolution of 5 x 5 km.
