Review on Regional Water Resources Assessment Models under Stationary and Changing Climate
A comprehensive assessment of the water resources available in a region or a river basin is essential for finding sustainable solutions for water-related problems concerning both the quantity andExpand
A Review on Monthly Water Balance Models for Water Resources Investigations
Research on the development and application of monthly water balance models has been carried out since the 1940s. A good body of experience has been gained for many models, and a review of theseExpand
Application of Water Balance Models to Different Climatic Regions in China for Water Resources Assessment
Uneven precipitation in space and time together with mismanagement and lack of knowledge about existing water resources, have caused water shortage problems for water supply to large cities andExpand
The water balance of a first order catchment in the montane grasslands of South Africa
Abstract Measurements of daily actual evaporation, streamflow, rainfall and soil water storage were measured for a two-year period in a 97 ha grassland catchment located in the Natal Drakensberg.Expand
A simple expression for the bulk field capacity of a sloping soil horizon
Field capacity is a commonly used soil parameter in surface water hydrological models, loosely defined as the moisture content of a soil after drainage. The most commonly applied expression for fieldExpand
Macroscale hydrologic models in support to climate research
For simulation experiments with atmospheric general circulation models (GCMs) more realistic information is required on certain land surface related hydrologie variables, in particular soil moistureExpand
Performance of simple temperature-based evaporation methods compared with a time series of pan evaporation measures from a standard 20 m2 tank
Abstract Evaporation and evapotranspiration is crucial part of hydrological and water resource management studies e.g. water footprinting. Proper methods for estimating evaporation/potentialExpand

Abstract : The need to simulate surface water flows in watersheds with diverse runoff production mechanisms has led to the development of the physically-based hydrologic model Gridded SurfaceExpand
Water Balance Methodology for indirect assessment and prediction of basin water yield under human-induced land use changes
The lastest versions of the Heat and Water Balance Models (HWBMs) are presented and their applicability to predict evapotranspiration losses from watersheds under changed land use patterns inExpand
Computation of daily Penman–Monteith reference evapotranspiration in the Carpathian Region and comparison with Thornthwaite estimates
Abstract. The Pannonian Basin Experiment (PannEx) is a Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP) of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) Project. A griddedExpand


Toward the structure of a production function for wheat yields with dated inputs of irrigation water
The interdependence between the rate of water used by plants and the available stocks of moisture in the soil, the temporal interdependence between water use at different time points, and theExpand
On the Assessment of Surface Heat Flux and Evaporation Using Large-Scale Parameters
Abstract In an introductory review it is reemphasized that the large-scale parameterization of the surface fluxes of sensible and latent heat is properly expressed in terms of energeticExpand

Potential evaporation: The combination concept and its experimental verification
Using a combination of a surface energy balance equation and an approximate expression of water vapor and sensible heat transfer, an equation is formulated relating potential evaporation for netExpand
Spatial interpolation of daily totals of rainfall
Abstract Some experiments concerning the spatial interpolation of daily rainfall totals are reported. Several well-known techniques were evaluated in an experimental way, namely by using the givenExpand
Evaluation of mean square error involved in approximating the areal average of a rainfall event by a discrete summation
Two-dimensional areal processes are commonly evaluated in hydrology through a discretization in space over the region in which the process is being studied. Such a discretization involves an error inExpand
Ecological optimality in water‐limited natural soil‐vegetation systems: 1. Theory and hypothesis
The solution space of an approximate statistical-dynamic model of the average annual water balance is explored with respect to the hydrologic parameters of both soil and vegetation. Within theExpand
On Penman's equation for estimating regional evaporation
The form of Penman's evaporation equation most extensively applied in hydrometeorology is discussed. It is shown that this equation underemphasizes the importance of ventilation relative to radiationExpand
