Hydrological forecasts and maps
Watershed simulation and forecasting system (WSFS)
Finnish Environment Institute has an hydrological watershed model system (WSFS). WSFS is used for flood forecasting, real-time monitoring, nutrient load simulation and climate change research. Hydrological water balance maps are created in real time. Forecasts are made daily for over 500 discharge and water level observation points. Forecasts are used for lake regulation planning, flood damage prevention and as information to public and authorities.
