The Remote Sensing in Hydrology research group in the Division of Water
Resources Engineering works with the integration of different remote sensing
precipitation data including ground- and satellite-based radar sensors.
Starting Fall 2022, the research group together with the Division of
Structural Engineering will initiate a project focusing on the integration of
X- and C-band weather radar, satellite, micro-rain radar, and conventional
measurement data such as rain gauge records using artificial intelligence.
Modeling of moisture content of rain-exposed wood and its deteriorating
mechanism is also a part of the project.
The appointee will develop an Artificial Intelligence-based model for the
integration of multiple rainfall sensors' data to produce a high-resolution
accurate precipitation dataset for real-time flood forecast in urban areas.
This includes the development of a method to network multiple X-band
polarimetric weather radar deployed in southern Sweden.
