  • Regionalisation of hydrological model parameters in nested catchments

    Regionalisation of hydrological model parameters in nested catchmentss Shailesh Kumar Singh National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, Christchurch, New Zealand A prediction in ungauged basins is one of the challenging tasks for a hydrologist of this century. Even though the physically based hydrological models can be the more appropriate in ungauged basins but data requirement limit the use. Conceptual hydrological models are simple and easy to use. But these model needs calibration before it can be used. Availability of…

  • Evaluation of Seasonal Streamflow Forecasting

    Evaluation of Seasonal Streamflow Forecasting Shailesh Kumar Singh National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, Christchurch, New Zealand Long-term streamflow forecasts are essential for optimal management of water resources for various demands, including irrigation, fisheries management, hydropower production and flood warning. In this paper, a probabilistic forecast framework based on Ensemble Streamflow Prediction (ESP) technique is presented, with the basic assumption that future weather patterns will reflect those experienced historically. Hence, past forcing data (input to hydrological model) can be…

  • From Micro- to Satellite Gravity: Understanding the Earth

    From Micro- to Satellite Gravity: Understanding the Earth Lev V. Eppelbaum School of Geosciences, Faculty of Exact Sciences, Tel Aviv University, Ramat Aviv 6997801, Tel Aviv, Israel The main physical principle of gravity method application is the difference in densities between the various geological, environmental, archaeological and other targets and host media. Gravity is one of the oldest geophysical methods and it is widely applied for knowledge of subsurface and deep Earth’s domains. The present review displays multiscale examples of…
