Experimental Hydrological Fluxes using Land Surface Model
Description of terrestrial hydrological flux components in terms of their geographical distribution and chronological variation is useful for water resources management, drought/flood assessment and climate related research. Earth Observation (EO) data from multitude platforms are providing wide ranging datasets that are useful for creation of spatially distributed parameters appropriate for hydrological budgeting and modeling.
Grid Details and Features
9min (~16.5km) Grid level modelling frame work (water balance mode) has been setup for the entire county using Geo-spatial data sets and historic meteorological data. Current season daily meteorological data are used to compute daily hydrological fluxes at 9min grid level.
The orderly description of hydrological fluxes are useful for quantifying spatial and temporal variation in basin/sub-basin scale water resources, periodical water budgeting and form vital inputs for studies on topics ranging from water resources management to land-atmosphere interactions including climate change.
