Rhone River basin, Switzerland

2011-ongoing

The continuation of the MINERVE project which aims to set up a hydrological-hydraulic model of the Rhône River basin (5’524 km2) upstream of Lake Geneva and to perform real-time simulations. The MINERVE system currently provides flood predictions based on MeteoSwiss meteorological forecasts and, when necessary, proposes preventive emptying of reservoirs for flood management.
