Meteodat GmbH has long-standing expert knowledge in producing inflow forecasts for dammed lakes,
as for example for the lake Mattmark in Canton Valais. These inflow forecasts are more than
an estimation of the inflow from the catchment. The combination of the inflow forecasts with
its probability accommodates the reliability of the forecast models and the sensitivity of the
catchment on corresponding weather types.
Inflow forecasts directly influence operation management of the
power plant and hence level of the dammed lake, which is used as compensating reservoir in case
of impending floods.
Meteodat GmbH offers you help in establishing flood protection concepts, in which inflow
forecasts can play a significant role.
