S.A.I.H. Hidrosur

The Automatic Hydrological Information System (SAIH) HIDROSUR is a network of remote stations that has been collecting real-time data on hydro-meteorological incidents since 1991. The network consists of different measuring stations equipped with sensors to measure water levels, flow rates, rainfall, among others. The data is transmitted to the control centre in Malaga, where it is validated, visualised and stored as a historical database.

The Decision Support System (DSS) complements the SAIH, using hydrometeorological models and computer tools to simulate the hydrological behaviour of the basin. This system supports management during floods, reducing their magnitude and anticipating warnings to Civil Protection volunteers. The SAD is fed with information from the SAIH and weather forecasts from the state meteorological agency (Aemet). Its core includes hydrological and hydraulic models to calculate flood flows and represent their transmission.
