Watch this webinar led by radar experts Stefan Siedschlag, Dr Anton Felder and Edgar Wetzel, focusing exclusively on discharge and water level radar technology in hydrological monitoring and analysis.

In today’s dynamic world, where climate change is challenging our understanding of water systems, the use of radar technology in hydrology, particularly for discharge and water level monitoring, is attracting a great deal of interest.

Radar is a non-contact measurement technology that removes all interference from the medium being measured, providing an unbiased means of assessing quantitative changes in water bodies. The advanced capabilities of discharge and water level radar give us a real-time understanding of river dynamics, allowing us to better manage floods, manage droughts and optimise water allocation.


  • Applications of radar in hydrology
  • How radar technology can contribute to the understanding and management of water resources
  • Real-life examples of the effectiveness of radar in hydrological monitoring and analysis
