Floods are affecting communities with increasing frequency. It’s more important than ever to be able to predict how rainfall, rivers and tidal surges are likely to affect buildings, people, communities and infrastructure. Flood forecasting is an integral part of these predictions.

The diagram illustrates the hydrological inputs and flows within Ambiental's flood forecasting solution.

At a Glance

  • An effective tool for emergency response teams
  • Can be easily integrated into flood warning systems
  • Predicts all sources of flooding
  • Designed specifically for the required area

We use our experience in designing early flood warning systems and flood response plans to support the design of bespoke flood forecasting systems.

We can advise on:

  • Hydrometry – working with rain gauge, river level, river flow, groundwater and automatic climate stations
  • Weather radar – identifying the most appropriate technology for your objectives and integrating radar systems with your flood forecasting
  • Telemetry – designing, implementing and integrating cost-effective systems
  • Flood models – developing 1D, 2D or hybrid models, and model schematisation
  • Software development – model control, real-time data acquisition and cross-system integration


  • Our flood forecasts can save lives, limit damage and reduce costs
  • Can help emergency response teams optimise their efforts
  • Easy to adapt to local requirements
