Yellow River – A Hydrological Basin Approach


Yellow River – A Hydrological Basin Approach

22 September 2020

Water managers are continuously making decisions to guarantee water safety. These decisions relate to the short term; for example, ongoing droughts or when there is a risk of flooding. But these decisions can also affect the long term given the more extreme weather events caused by climate change. All these decisions have one thing in common: they are often grounded on results from hydrological models.

During this seminar, a possible hydrological basin approach for the Yellow River in the People’s Republic of China will be presented, and a distributed hydrological model as part of an open-source modeling platform for hydrological simulations will be demonstrated. Various examples of its applications for modeling hydrological extremes under present and future climate, modeling effects of reservoirs, and/or sediment in large river basins will be shown.
