Short summary
This study aims to bridge the gap between water resources forecasts from the short-range (days) up to the long-range (seasonal) timescale. Applications of such a system are typically the waterpower industry, river and lake transports, and water resources management. The study uses a new meteorological forecast product combined with a hydrological model to predict river discharge over the major European river basins. The results show an improvement in comparison with the current system.
