These are only a few examples from among the great number of events we needed to take into account and to process in order to achieve an accurate knowledge of the river behaviour during floods; and, in conclusion, we want to emphasize again how the use of an interactive system and a video unit have made it possible to set up our model very quickly, through the fitting of a great number of past events, and to use it very easily for any purpose, such as studying the concurrence of different parameters on the phenomenon, supplying the engineering design with the necessary data (water levels and discharges), simulating the behaviour of engineering hydraulic works to be built, and giving objective and timely data for flood control.
