HYDROLOGIC FLOW FORECAST VERIFICATION
The reviewer: Doctor D.A. Burakov
Recommendations for verification of long-, medium- and short-range river flow and reservoir inflow forecasts are presented as well as recommendations for producing and evaluating probabilistic forecasts. The recommendations were developed using the latest advances in statistical analysis of hydrometeorological information. They allow to objectively evaluate the effectiveness of flow forecasting techniques, to choose optimal forecasting methods, and to figure out the direction for their further improvement.
The recommendations aim to improve the effectiveness and quality of water management activities planning and operational decision making in water-related hazard management and water resources management.
For specialists in hydrometeorological forecasting, hydrology, water management, and environmental monitoring.
