New flood alert system in India

SHILLONG, India: A new flood monitoring system, aided by microwave remote sensing, will come up along the Brahmaputra basin in the North-East to help plan and execute efficient emergency response measures.

The Centrally-funded project, executed by the Pune-based Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), aims at a new object-oriented strategy to attempt “near-real time” flood monitoring in the Brahmaputra basin with the help of microwave remote sensing system that can penetrate clouds.

Floods in Assam are an annual phenomenon causing massive destruction to life and property, mostly due to lack of efficient mitigation measures.
