Research and development work is being conducted for the National Weather Service on a new-generation flash flood monitoring and forecasting computer workstation. The workstation represents an integration of national data sources, regional networks of real-time rain gages, radar-rainfall and satellite remote sensing, and geographic information system and relational database management software. The HYDROMET system provides for hydrologic forecast analyses and (semi) automatic warning message dissemination.
