Vegetation resistance influences water flow in floodplains. Characterization of vegetation for hydraulic modeling includes the description of the spatial variability of vegetation type, height and density. In this research, we explored the use of dual polarized Radarsat-2 wide swath mode backscatter coefficients (σ°) and Landsat 5 TM to derive spatial(More)
Rainfall Runoff modeling is an important tool in the study of water resources and water management of the watersheds. Rainfall runoff models are mainly used for river flow forecasting for the management of the resource and to minimize the ill effects through early warning measures. This paper deals with rainfall runoff modeling of the upper Awash River(More)
Perceptions and realities of water and conflict in basins such as the Nile vary widely. The river continues to be brought into debates about “water wars” by writers on the subject. One of the major problems with the “water wars” thesis is that it includes only a cursory understanding of “scarcity” issues, and of the actual facts and figures that underlie(More)
