Large Sample Basin Experiments for Hydrological Model Parameterization

Author / Editor: Vazken Andreassian, Alan Hall, Nanee Chahinian & John Schaake
Publication Number: 307
ISBN Number: 978-1-901502-73-2
Year: 2006
Pages: 348 + iv

Price: £70.00

This volume contains 25 papers, many of which follow from presentations made at the last two MOPEX workshops: July 2004 at ENGREF, Paris, France, and April 2005 at the IAHS Assembly in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil. An objective is to show how valuable it is to work on large data sets in hydrological modelling. The first section provides an introduction to the goals of the MOPEX project, and presents the databases that were used by the workshop participants. Much of the data is published on the DVD accompanying this volume. The second section groups four review papers that were not presented during the MOPEX workshops, but solicited especially for this volume, in order to provide alternative views on the use of large sample basin experiments in hydrology. The third and the fourth sections present model parameterization experiments based on samples of a large number of basins: in the third, the focus is on the databases that were gathered specifically for the MOPEX program, while the fourth presents regionalization and parameterization studies based on other large hydrometeorological databases. The fifth section presents a compilation of the most recent results of the project, and discusses its perspectives.
