In MUFFIN, development of forecasting systems will take place in Aalborg (DK), Rotterdam (NL) and Helsinki (FI). In these cities, both (local) hydraulic models and high-resolution hydrological HYPE models (sub-models from a large-scale, multi-basin system; http://hypeweb.smhi.se/) will be set up and optimized. Also coupled systems will be explored, where the hydrological model provides relevant boundary conditions or other supporting information for the hydraulic model.

A joint real-time forecasting experiment is scheduled for summer 2018, when all models are run both separately and in combined set-ups. The experiment design will be based on end-user requirements and the results will form the basis of the final project workshop.

This MUFFIN website is a prototype for development and discussion within the project.
