PROJECT SUMMARY

This project has looked into improving a number of the Met Office radar products with the overall goal of improving the quality of radar based precipitation estimates, and therefore reducing the impacts of flooding. These improved products have been delivered via existing data systems and therefore has required no new training requirements by Environment Agency regional flood forecasting staff.
