Keywords: SWAT Continuous rainfall–runoff model Eastern Desert Sinai peninsula Remote sensing GIS s u m m a r y Efforts to understand and to quantify precipitation and its partitioning into runoff evapo-transpiration, and recharge are often hampered by the absence or paucity of appropriate monitoring systems. We applied methodologies for rainfall–runoff and(More)
The dramatic increase in space-borne sensors over the past two decades is presenting unique opportunities for new and enhanced applications in various scientific disciplines. Using these data sets, hydrogeologists can now address and understand the partitioning of water systems on regional and global scales, yet such applications present mounting challenges(More)
TRMM Multi-satellite Precipitation Analysis (TMPA) satellite precipitation products have been utilized to quantify, forecast, or understand precipitation patterns, climate change, hydrologic models, and drought in numerous scientific investigations. The TMPA products recently went through a series of algorithm developments to enhance the accuracy and(More)

Significant changes have been observed in the hydrology of Central Rift Valley (CRV) lakes in Ethiopia, East Africa as a result of both natural processes and human activities during the past three decades. This study applied an integrated approach (remote sensing, hydrologic modelling, and statistical analysis) to understand the relative effects of natural(More)
The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model was used to provide continuous (1998-2006) simulation of overland flow, channel flow, transmission losses for the for the Raudatain watershed in northern Kuwait, and the Umm Al Aish watershed in central Kuwait covering approximately 50% of the Kuwaiti landscape. Inputs required for the SWAT model were(More)
To address a nation's or a region's water-related sustainability problems, one of key elements is to characterize and quantify renewable water resources for a better management. In the arid and semiarid areas, it has been a great challenge to quantify the renewable water resources due to limited access and monitoring systems on the land. This study(More)
Satellite observations were used to test the validity of previously identified favourable conditions for the formation of freshwater lenses, identify additional potential occurrences, and model modern potential recharge in the Raudhatain Watershed (3696) in northern Kuwait. Favourable conditions include infrequent yet intensive precipitation events,(More)
