Related research Back to top

The research undertaken within this pilot study is closely linked to the domestic research activities related to the Update of the Vásárhelyi Plan (see Links to Other Research).  This is a complex flood risk management and regional development project.  The flood risk management component comprises:

  • Improvement of the flood conveyance capacity of the Tisza River;

  • Reduction of flood peaks by making more space for the river by local dike relocations and partial floodplain reactivation, as well as by creating flood detention basins; and

  • Development of dike profiles to meet acceptable standards.

Although the Tisza pilot study is not directly connected to the European Flood Forecasting System (EFFS) and the European Flood Alert System (EFAS) projects, the same team members participate in all three projects, so there has been an exchange of information, knowledge and experience.

Forecasting and dissemination of results Back to top

The five countries (Ukraine, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Serbia) combined efforts to improve flood management in the Tisza Basin. One of the topics of analysis was to find an efficient way of forecasting and dissemination of results. The idea of a web based “virtual forecasting centre” was welcomed by the working groups.  Therefore, a web-based database is proposed and a draft version has been prepared.

Further information can be found in FLOODsite report T22-09-02 “The development the basin wide system of flood warning” by Péter Bartha et al., which can be accessed via the “Publications Available Online” button at the top of this page.
