As a user of ASAP, you do not need to install any software, or make any customizations – you simply login to get access to your forecast site, which updates automatically, and you have the option to interact with the forecasts, e.g. for setting custom warning levels for temperature, algal levels etc. You can either provide an already existing WET case, which can readily be plugged into ASAP, or you can also ask our experts to set up a WET model for your chosen site.

 

Once a model is plugged into the ASAP Reservoir system, the following workflow can be completed:

 

  • Scan WET application and its location information.
  • Download and format local GFS weather forecast data.
  • Incorporate forecast data into WET weather inputs.
  • Optional: Import observation data from a sensor system installed in lake or reservoir, and change vertical profiles accordingly (e.g. for temperature) and prepare model hot-start based on this new data
  • Execute forecast run and send key results to web front-end.
  • Allow user-interactions through web front-end (e.g. custom warning levels for temperature, oxygen, algal levels etc.).


ASAP RESERVOIR

A Scalable wAter Prognosis for RESERVOIRS

ASAP Reservoir is a tool for producing hydrodynamic and water quality forecasts for lakes and reservoirs. The tool is based on a coupled hydrodynamic-ecosystem model forced with a 16-day weather forecast. The tool can be linked to ASAP Rural to account for changes in inflow discharge and nutrient loads during the forecast window.


  • Reservoir forecasting made easy
  • A plug-and-play web-based solution
  • Simulate thermal stratification and water quality during a 16-day forecast.


The core concept of ASAP Reservoir is to automate all steps required for an operational hydrodynamic-ecological forecast for a reservoir or lake at any location in the world. The software workflow is designed around the state-of-the-art WET model (http://www.wet.au.dk), and the globally available GFS 16-day forecast data (Global Forecast system). Adaptation to other forecast data sources can also be made upon request.



ASAP RURAL

A Scalable wAter Prognosis for RURAL areas

ASAP is a novel software solution that enables eco-hydrological forecasts for any location in the world through a web-based service. The system is a tool for early warnings and decision support to alleviate impacts of floods, drought and water pollution.


  • Hydrological forecasting made easy and affordable
  • Unique early warning and planning system
  • Simulate runoff, soil water content, pollutant transport and more during a 16-day forecast
  • A plug-and-play web-based solution
  • No need for software installation or software-technical expertise.


The core concept of ASAP Rural is to automate all steps required for an operational eco-hydrological forecast for any location in the world. The software workflow is designed around the widely applied and well documented SWAT model (Soil and Water Assessment Tool, http://swat.tamu.edu), and the globally available GFS 16-day forecast data (Global Forecast system). Adaptation to other forecast data sources can also be made upon request.

As a user of ASAP, you do not need to install any software, or make any customizations – you simply login to get access to your forecast area, which updates automatically, and you have the option to interact with the forecasts, e.g. for setting custom warning levels for stream discharge levels, soil water content etc. You can either provide an already existing SWAT case, which can readily be plugged into ASAP, or you can also ask our experts to set up a SWAT model for your chosen area.


Once a model is plugged into the ASAP Rural system, the following workflow can be completed:


  • Scan SWAT application and its weather station information.
  • Download and format local GFS weather forecast data.
  • Incorporate forecast data into SWAT weather inputs.
  • Execute forecast run and send key results to web front-end.
  • Allow user-interactions through web front-end (e.g. custom warning levels for local stream discharge, soil water content etc.).


ASAP URBAN

A Scalable wAter Prognosis for URBAN areas

ASAP Urban is a tool for producing risk map approximations for residential areas threatened by stormwater incidents. The tool is based on the deterministic eight-node (D8) flow-direction algorithm implemented in “Malstroem”, which was originally developed by Balstrøm and Crawford (2018). ASAP Urban combines detailed analysis of elevation maps with 16-day precipitation forecasts.


  • Urban flood screening made easy
  • A plug-and-play web-based solution
  • Simulate bluespots in urban landscapes during a 16-day forecast
  • Create and simulate user defined scenarios (e.g. to estimate effects of a 100 year event).
