Spatial evapotranspiration, rainfall and land use data in water accounting - Part 1: Review of the accuracy of the remote sensing data
The scarcity of water encourages scientists to develop new analytical tools to enhance water resource management. Water accounting and distributed hydrological models are examples of such tools.Expand
Reducing carbon emissions through improved irrigation and groundwater management: A case study from Iran
Groundwater irrigation consumes considerable energy as well as water resources across the globe. Using a case study from Iran, this paper explores how enhanced farm water management can help inExpand
Producing more food with less water in a changing world: assessment of water productivity in 10 major river basins
This article summarizes the results of water productivity assessment in 10 river basins across Asia, Africa and South America, representing a range of agro-climatic and socio-economic conditions.Expand
Spatial evapotranspiration, rainfall and land use data in water accounting. Part 2: Reliability of water accounting results for policy decisions in the Awash basin
Water Accounting Plus (WAC) is a framework that summarizes complex hydrological processes and water management issues in river basins. The framework is designed to use satellite-based measurements ofExpand
Water Accounting Plus (WA+) - a water accounting procedure for complex river basins based on satellite measurements
Coping with water scarcity and growing competition for water among different sectors requires proper water management strategies and decision processes. A pre-requisite is a clear understanding ofExpand
Earth Observation Based Assessment of the Water Production and Water Consumption of Nile Basin Agro-Ecosystems
This paper explains how public domain Earth Observation data based on Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), Second Generation Meteosat (MSG), Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM) and various altimeter measurements can be used to estimate net water production (rainfall (P) > evapotranspiration (ET) and net water consumption of Nile Basin agro-ecosystems.

Mapping basin-level water productivity using remote sensing and secondary data in the Karkheh River Basin, Iran
This article deals with water productivity (WP) assessment at a range of spatial scales for the Karkheh Basin, Iran. Sub-catchment to basin-scale estimates are based on an innovative method that usesExpand
Status of accuracy in remotely sensed and in-situ agricultural water productivity estimates: A review
Abstract The scarcity of water and the growing global food demand has fevered the debate on how to increase agricultural production without further depleting water resources. Crop water productivityExpand
A novel tool to assess available hydrological information and the occurrence of sub-optimal water allocation decisions in large irrigation districts
Hydrological information on water availability and demand is vital for sound water allocation decisions in irrigation districts, particularly in times of water scarcity. However, water allocationExpand
