New monograph with our participation

The new monograph “River Flood Forecasting System: An Interdisciplinary Approach” published by Springer is now available online.

The staff of our laboratory – S.A. Potryasaev, I.Yu. Pimanov, B.V. Sokolov, V.A. Zelentsov – participated in the creation of this monograph. Together with specialists from Moscow organizations they prepared the chapter “River Flood Forecasting System: An Interdisciplinary Approach” that presents the main results of developing river flood operational forecasting system on the basis of service-oriented architecture and remote sensing data.

The monograph is the result of cooperation with scientists from the National Research Council of Italy on the topic of remote sensing data processing for flood mapping, monitoring and forecasting.

Flood forecasting system is ready for testing in real-time mode

Flood forecasting system is ready for testing in real-time mode

The participants of the project under the Russian Science Foundation grant 17-11-01254 visited the city of Arkhangelsk to organize the testing of the developed flood forecasting system on the river Northern Dvina.

On November 16-17, 2017, several working meetings were held with the management and staff of the Northern Department for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring and Agency of the State Fire Service and Civil Protection of the Arkhangelsk Oblast.

The meetings provided information on the current prototype of the system developed by the LITSAM, Moscow State University and Institute of Water Problems RAS, and the results of its operation using real historical data on the floods of 1998-2016.

The representatives of organizations were very interested in the possibility of the system to operate in fully automatic mode using a set of verified hydrological and hydrodynamic models, to obtain operational forecast results on a digital cartographic basis from any user mobile and stationary device, and to take into account ice blocking during the modeling.

The results of the visit were the arrangements to test the system in real time mode during the spring flood in 2018 using current hydrometeorological data from gauging stations and meteorological stations.

GeoCa 2017

GeoCa 2017

On November 08-10, 2017 the 2nd International Conference on Applied Science «Geodesy, Cartography, Geoinformatics and Cadastre. From idea to application» (GeoCa-2017) took place in Saint Petersburg. The conference was organized by Saint Petersburg University (Institute of Earth Science, Department of Cartography and Geoinformatics), Russian Geographical Society, St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO University), St. Petersburg Society for Surveying & Mapping.

The sections of the conference were held at Russian Geographical Society and ITMO University. In the assembly hall of the Russian Geographical Society the participants presented the results of scientific research and innovations in the field of geodesy. This section became the leader among others in the number of reports and participants. The use of GNSS-technologies and topical issues of receiving and processing Earth remote sensing data were discussed on this section.

At GeoCa-2017 junior researcher of LITSAM Maria Ponomarenko presented the following report:

Pimanov I., Ponomarenko M. SAR based detection of flooded areas for the verification of short-term flood forecasting.

VII Belarusian Space Congress

VII Belarusian Space Congress

On 24-26 October, 2017, VII Belarusian Space Congress took place in Minsk. The congress was held at Presidium of National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB). The event was organized by NASB and United Institute of Informatics Problems (UIIP).

During the congress new achievements in the field of space technologies, processing and use of remote sensing data were discussed.

On the section “Use of space activities results in the interests of various economic branches” junior researcher of LITSAM Pimanov I.Yu. presented the following report:

“Information platform for creating and providing thematic services with the use of remote sensing data” (Authors: Zelentsov V.A., Kovalev A.P., Pimanov I.Yu., Potriasaev S.A., Semenov A.E.).

The report aroused great interest and active discussion of the congress participants. The issues raised in the report helped to identify common interests and outline topics for future cooperation.
