Toelichting (Engels) Precise and accurate flood forecasting is essential to decision making with regard to flood management. Untimely or premature flood warning results in millions of Euros in unnecessary damages or claims. To improve flood forecast accuracy actual measured data is combined with estimates using a mathematical flood model, a procedure called data-assimilation. Additionally data-assimilation provides an estimate of the forecast error, which is an useful addition to decision making in flood management. This paper discusses the benefits in using data-assimilation in on-line flood forecasting and the possible use of satellite images, based on a pilot study for the River Rhine between Andernach and Dusseldorf
