Advantages

  • Simple and cost-effective floater units make it possible to install multiple measurement units.
  • High spatial and temporal resolution of water level profile.
  • High reliability due to redundant measurement units of the simple system.
  • The system is mobile and can be quickly and easily deployed when and where it is needed.
  • Quick deployment of measuring units in affected regions including emerging countries.
  • Autonomously operating units requiring minimum maintenance and providing a continuous flow of data.
  • High mobility of the system, facilitating its application in emerging nations or remote regions having no infrastructure at all.
  • Flexibility: Only the actually needed numbers of measurement units have to be installed.

The G-WaLe system can provide

  • A more efficient calibration of river models for flood forecasting.
  • Assistance of operations in crisis situations.
  • A reduction in economical and social effects through flood situations.
