The hydrological model PREVAH is adopted for (ensemble) runoff forecasts for several basins in Switzerland and North Italy.
Runoff nowcasting is driven by observed meteorology consisting of data from meteorological stations and operational radar precipitation data. Forecasts are computed with three deterministic NWP models and with one atmospheric ensemble predictions system (EPS).
Principal investigators are the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Sciences of the ETH (IAC_ETH) and the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL).

Some of the basins are affected by hydropower management.
Such influence has been accounted in a rather conceptual manner.
According to agreements within DPHASE data from timesteps not delivered in time could be missing. In this case a dummy file was created and inserted in the database.
Sub-basins Toce_at_Candoglia and Ticino_at_Miorina use rainfall from radar since no surface gauges are operationally available.
