The Centre of Applied Research in Hydrometeorology (CRAHI UPC) worked on updating the EHIMI, a tool that the group developed for the Catalan Water Agency (ACA) and the Meteorological Service of Catalonia (SCM).



The EHIMI is a software tool consisting of a set of applications used for processing and displaying radar and hydrological data that are helpful for monitoring the intensity of rainfall at a particular time and location, and for decision-making in situations where there is a risk of surface or river flooding.

The EHIMI tool is aimed at generating corrected reflectivity products, such as Meteocat’s meteorological radar, useful for spatial and temporal description of rain fields, based on the information generated by the SMC’s Meteorological Radar Network (XRAD).

The update adapts the EHIMI to the evolution of the SMC’s Meteorological Radar Network (XRAD) and extends the functionalities of the system.
