Abstract

[1] Intense rain events frequently result in devastating flash floods in Mediterranean regions. To improve the understanding and prediction of these phenomena, the Cévennes-Vivarais Mediterranean Hydrometeorological Observatory (CVMHO) was set up in 2000. The observation strategies deployed include the detailed and long-lasting (>10 years) observation in the Cévennes-Vivarais region (France) using both operational observation systems and research instrumentation. The present note describes the procedures implemented by CVMHO to critically analyze and generate hydrometeorological products for research. The related data can be viewed or downloaded via the Système d'Extraction et de Visualisation des Données de l'Observatoire en Ligne (SEVnOL) interface on the CVMHO Web site.
