A list of web platforms and services developed by GFP partner institutes and updated on a regular basis, showing products targeted for global flood forecasting, monitoring and risk management

Aqueduct Global Flood Analyzer

The Aqueduct Global Flood Analyzer is a web-based interactive platform which measures river flood impacts by urban damage, affected GDP, and affected population at the country, state, and river basin scale across the globe

Dartmouth Flood Observatory

Dartmouth Flood Observatory

Space-based Measurement and Modeling of Surface Water For Research, Humanitarian, and Water Management Applications

Flood List

Flood List

Aims to bring information about floods and flooding from around the world, with the hope that it will inspire helpful discussion and collaboration in preparing for and dealing with the effects of flooding


Global Flood Awareness System (GloFAS)

GloFAS is a pre-operational system for global scale flood early warning with forecast horizon up to 30 days in all major world rivers. It is based on hydrological simulation of ensemble weather forecasts and exceedance analysis of streamflow predictions over reference flood warning thresholds

Global Flood Detection System

Global Flood Detection System

The Global Flood Detection System monitors floods worldwide using near-real time satellite data. GFDS currently monitors around 10000 areas

Global Flood Monitoring System

Global Flood Monitoring System (GFMS)

It is a NASA-funded experimental system using real-time TRMM Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPAd) precipitation information

Global Flood News

Global Flood News

Monitoring of media is fairly common in many larger organisations. The use of social media in natural disasters has also demonstrated benefits. The same technologies can be used to monitor main stream and social media reports of floods

To demonstrate the added value of hydrological ensemble predictions (HEPS) for emergency management and water resources sectors to make decisions that have important consequences for economy, public health and safety

Real-time Integrated Global Flood Map

Real-time Integrated Global Flood Map

The Critech Web Map Viewer offers an intuitive Web interface. Real-time Integrated Global Flood Map

Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)

Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)

The TRMM is a joint mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) designed to monitor and study tropical rainfall



A collection of datasets and related web links to aid the global flood risk management cycle or be used as input data within global and regional models


A collection of publications resulting from collaborations among GFP partner institutes
