Short summary
Flood forecasting in the downstream part of any hydrological basin is extremely difficult due to the lack of basin-wide hydrological information in near real-time and the absence of a data-sharing treaty among the transboundary nations. The satellite altimeter monitoring allows estimation of water level in the upstream and provide forecasting in the downstream in support of flood early warning and disaster risks reduction measures.
