HORA 3

Where in Austria do floods happen and how high is their probability?

HORA 3 was commissioned by the Ministry of Life and the Austrian Insurance Association. Here different flooding scenarios are calculated for different annualities (for example for 100- or even 300-year floods). This is to be carried out for a length of 40,000 km. The project is a cooperation of the VRVis with Prof. Günter Blöschl from the Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Hydrology at the Vienna University of Technology, the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation of the Vienna University of Technology and the engineering office Günter Humer.
