DATASET

EFAS threshold level exceedance

Collection: CEMS-EFAS : European Flood Awareness System 

Description

This data set contains for all locations across Europen rivers for which EFAS is predicting floods specifications on the time and magnitude of the forecasted flood peak.

The magnitude is indicated by the highest EFAS threshold level exceeded (2-,5- and 20-year return period), while the timing is given as number of days (0-10 days) till the reach of the flood peak.

This information is produced by the operational EFAS (www.efas.eu) in order to provide the EFAS partners with an up-to-date overview on the evolution (quantitative and temporal) of flood peaks through affected rivers across Europe.

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.
