This chapter provides an overview of hydrological processes relevant at the catchment scale, and it also identifies areas where environmental isotopes have assisted the study of such processes. It outlines the general components of the water balance equation and reviews the salient physical principles associated with each component. Streamflow simulation for continental‐scale river basins.

To assess the model description of spatial hydrological processes in the arid alpine catchment, SWAT and MIKE SHE were jointly applied in Yarkant River basin located in northwest China.

  Consequently, there is a strong need for hydrologic modelling tools that can be used to assess the likely effects of land use changes as well as climate variability on the hydrologic cycle at a catchment scale. Moreover, improved hydrological models at the basin scale would provide the means for sound water resource management, which is a. The study of hydrology also includes quantifying the effects of such human interventions on the natural system at watershed, river basin, regional, country, continental, and global scales. The.

Guided by topography, a drainage divide separates the water that flows into and away from a catchment. A basin integrates the disparate hydrologic activities occurring spatially within its domain. Streamflow characteristics are a manifestation of the combined results of various hydrologic processes occurring in a basin. Search within Search term. Garrison Sposito Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Hydrologic Processes from Catchment to Continental Scales book, this is one of the most wanted Garrison Sposito author readers around the world. Continental hydroclimate services have recently received attention to address various user needs. However, predictions for months ahead can be limited at catchment scale, highlighting the need for data tailoring. Here, we compare the predictions from two hydrologic setups at catchment scale.
