Title: FRONTIERS evaluation of radar-based rainfall and river flow forecasts April 1992 to March 1993
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
Following the completion of the Met. Office (MO)-National Rivers Authority (NRA) evaluation of FRONTIERS precipitation accumulation forecasts in March 1992 and the publication of the Final Report, it was agreed that the lack of flood events necessitated a continuation project. In addition, a general lack of thunderstorm events in either the NRA Thames or North West regions meant that this work was unable to provide data from which any conclusions could be drawn regarding the performance of the FRONTIERS system in such meteorological situations. Since thunderstorm rainfall is a major cause of flood events in both regions of the NRA and elsewhere in England and Wales, it was felt imperative that further studies be undertaken.
