Local Area Weather Radar
DHI has developed a short range weather radar (LAWR) to detect the spatial variation of local rainfalls. This is useful for providing rainfall forecasts with a few hours' warning and high resolution rainfall data.
The radar measurements may be presented as time series of rainfall for specific catchments or as graphical images of the full radar coverage. This information can be broadcast to the web in real-time.
DHI’s weather radar can also be combined with its urban drainage models and thus provide an integral part of urban information and flood management systems.
Examples of Local Area Weather Radar data can be viewed online at www.regn.dk (partly in Danish).
