Abstract:

Amount of daily precipitation in 2017/03/19 in Iran derived from Global Precipitation Measurements missionShushtar historical hydraulic system, IranMethods and tools for the application-oriented transfer of regionalized global information to water management in data-sparse semi-arid regions will be developed and their performance analysed. In a cooperation of seven scientific partners and two companies, the regional focus will be on Sudan, Iran, Brazil, Ecuador/Peru, and West Africa. For hydrological design purposes, our temporal scale covers the past up to the present, while for operational management purposes it will address the upcoming 1-12 months. SaWaM employs models addressing seasonal forecasting, water availability, sedimentation processes, and ecosystem states. Model approaches are extended by satellite-borne methods. An online prototype of a globally applicable decision support system for dry-land water management will be developed through an integrative approach in close cooperation with German business partners and local stakeholders.
