Unique river systems demand unique models

valentin

A new satellite-based river modelling technique can account for the unique dynamics of individual water bodies. Models using Earth observation data to predict surface water availability and extent provide useful tools for sustainable management and restoration of terrestrial surface water […]

Vegetation plays a key role in the changing global energy and water cycles

ET

Evapotranspiration from the global land surface has increased significantly due to increases in transpiration and interception that are only partially counteracted by decreasing soil evaporation, a new study reports. Terrestrial evaporation (ET) is a key component of the energy and water cycles over global […]

Get your geek on: handling data for ensemble forecasting

lead_time

There’s something about discussions of data handling that’s particularly soporific – but don’t nod off yet! Most hydrologists are trained to work on individual catchments and we often opt for simple conceptual models. In the pre-ensemble era, we […]
