Abstract: A microcomputer based real-time flood warning system is being developed as an event monitoring and early warning system for local areas. The system consists of a micro computer based central receive site and up to 300 remote sites. Remote site packages include instruments for measuring the desired remote parameters, and telemetry equipment and accessories. The user may select instruments for measuring stage, rainfall, and/or other desired telephone, GOES satellite, local recording, or a combination of these. The microcomputer based central receiver site features simultaneous data acquisition and display, real-time direct readout, color display and data base options, and telephone dial-in/dial-out options.
