Abstract
Flash floods induced by heavy rain are natural hazards that significantly affect human lives. Anticipating flash floods in real-time for effective response requires accurate rainfall observations with rapid update in time. And proper understanding regarding runoff generation (e.g., hydrological and hydraulic processes within a catchment) is also necessary. For the last few years, the flash flood early warning module of the European Rainfall–Induced Hazard As- sessment (ERICHA) system has been ...
