Flood Forecasting

Baron’s suite of hydrology tools provides a fully integrated, turn-key solution for the forecasting and notification of hydrologic events. Customized and scalable to the user’s requirements, the Baron flood forecasting suite is designed to provide critical decision guidance, allowing officials to better anticipate flooding events, provide public awareness, and dispatch emergency services to the affected locations.

Hydrometeorological measurements and modeling can be implemented into national composites. In addition, meteorologists can easily send site-specific alerts of heavy rainfall and official flash-flood warnings, delivered via email, mobile devices and alert radios. Only subscribers in threatened areas receive the notification.
