BlueEarth Engine

A combination of models was setup to simulate the complete water balance and water quality of the Ganga River Basin. The modelling chain included models for describing the rainfall runoff processes, the water demand for irrigation, urban water use and industry water use, groundwater interaction (abstractions and river interaction) and the water quality processes in the main river system of the Ganga basin. The models were connected sequentially to pass on timeseries from model to model. Different climate scenarios and water use and management scenarios were run with the integrated model.
