Model-based management of river Gudenå

Enabling efficient flood risk mapping, forecasting and river regulation

In recent years, water levels in the Gudenå River have been steadily rising. These rises, combined with climate change-induced higher rainfall intensities have sparked concerns about future flooding risks. In order to identify and implement new river management/maintenance measures, we developed an integrated hydraulic model based on our MIKE by DHI software suite components. In so doing, we helped the authorities conduct effective river mapping and flood forecasting and develop more efficient river regulation and maintenance schemes. Our tailored, user-friendly modelling tools and services now help them plan and manage the river better.
