Soil Information System of the Danube River Basin - source of the data for flooding prediction models. Beata Houšková Soil & Waste Unit, Institute for Environment & Sustainability, JRC Ispra Italy
Soil Information System (SIS) on Danube river basin Flood Risk Assessment Project Georeferenced Soil Database of Europe Odra river basin – pilot project (Development of the soil digital database for the Odra basin at the scale 1:250,000. Final report, Warsaw, 2001)
Flood Risk Assessment Project LISFLOOD model – evaluation of flood risk in different time interval
Cascade structure of LISFLOOD model 4. LISFLOOD-FF: a flood forecasting model
Use of Soil data in LISFLOOD model Inputs topsoil texture subsoil texture depth to bedrock Parent material topsoil VanGenuchtenparameters subsoil VanGenuchtenparameters HYPRES Infiltration parameters water storage Groundwater parametersgroundwater infiltration h/v transport
Georeferenced Soil Database of Europe (1:250,000)
