  Name: Global Flood Alert System
  Abbreviation: GFAS
  Description: IFNet provides information on global rainfall with indication of heavy rainfall areas utilizing data observed by global observation satellites. The information is expected to become a valuable source for flood forecasting and warning, particularly in such river basins as: rivers without any telemetry system; large rivers where upstream rainfall takes several days to reach downstream; transboundary rivers where it is difficult to communicate information from upstream to downstream.
