The OPARA service was recently upgraded to a new technical platform. You are visiting the outdated OPARA website. Please use for new data submissions. Previously stored data will be migrated in near future and then the old version of OPARA will finally be shut down. Existing DOIs for data publications remain valid.

The project goal is the development of innovative techniques for spatio-temporal high resolution monitoring and small-scale simulation of extreme events. In a cooperation between the chairs of Hydrology, Meteorology, Geoinformatics and Photogrammetry, of the TU Dresden, new types of operational monitoring systems will be developed. Existing monitoring networks will be densified using modern low-cost sensors, specific remote sensing data and geographical information systems. Additionally, historical analyses and predictive modelling of small-scale extreme events with different climate scenarios will support to predict the expected effects of climate change. The developed information will serve as a base for upcoming early warning systems and future adjustment strategies.

This project is open access and publicly accessible.
