Modelling approach

Definition

Context

In order to accomplish the tasks of Integrated Water Management, it is of great importance to obtain hydrological information and quantify the processes in the catchment areas.

The types of hydrological information needed to achieve high level of flood protection, are mainly:

  • determination of the peak flow and discharge hydrograph along the river,
  • determination of flood stages, flood probability, inundation areas and
  • evaluation of groundwater recharge and the effect of flood control measures on the hydrological system.

For quantification, mathematical models are widely used for the simulation of hydrological processes in catchments and flow processes in rivers.
