DATASET

EFAS ECMWF-ENS/ COSMO-LEPS -based probabilistic flood forecast

Collection: CEMS-EFAS : European Flood Awareness System 

Description

This data set composes of four separate layers, each showing a probabilistic flood forecast on a pan-European scale. Two of those are based on the ECMWF-ENS and the other two on the COSMO-LEPS. For each data source the number of ensembles above two threshold levels (5- and 20-year return period) are visualized.

This information is produced by the operational EFAS (www.efas.eu) in order to provide the EFAS partners with a more detailed insight into the different forecasts and thresholds.

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.
