Diverting Disaster

Libby Casavant, an IFC grad student, is working closely with advisors at IIHR, IFC, and Deltares in the Netherlands to study sediment deposition in the Kosi River of Bihar, India.

Scale-Dependent Value of QPF for Real-Time Streamflow Forecasting

Incorporating rainfall forecasts into a real-time streamflow forecasting system extends the forecast lead time.  This study explores the problem systematically, exploring the uncertainties associated with QPFs and their hydrologic predictability. The focus is on scale dependence of the trade-off between the QPF time horizon, basin-scale, space-time scale of the QPF, and streamflow forecasting accuracy. To […]
