Accurate quantification of surface and groundwater storage change is crucial for sustainable water resource management. Conceptual hydrological models have been for so long the main tools that provide such information for planning purposes. These models are available under various configurations from simple lumped to more complex and distributed models. They are widely used by water managers due to their low requirements of input data and flexibility in application. Although they are of huge attractiveness, these kinds of models can be quite challenging when used to simulate streamflow in ungauged watersheds. The inadequacy of their structure to a specific hydrologic regime and, thus, their susceptibility to equifinality increases the uncertainty of the model outputs. Data-driven models constitute an unprecedented opportunity to deal with such issues, particularly with the emergence of several large-scale hydrometeorological gridded data. In recent years, many remote sensing-based datasets (e.g., Rainfall from GPM IMERG, Snow cover from MODIS, Soil Moisture from SMAP) have become available which can serve as inputs within a water fluxes modeling scheme.

In this perspective, the main objective of the proposed Ph.D. thesis is to develop a data-driven water balance modeling scheme. The approach relies on integrating multisource freely available remote sensing hydrometeorological datasets to simulate the main components of the water balance.

Key duties

The proposed research includes the following tasks:

  • Collect and process in situ and remote sensing data.
  • Design and conduct fieldwork for in-situ measurements and samplings.
  • Implement and evaluate different conceptual and data-driven models for simulating the main water balance components (e.g., Surface runoff, snowmelt)
  • Assess the sensitivity of the models to changes in environmental factors.
  • Quantify the contribution of the drainage area to the storage changes of surface and underground reservoirs.
  • Develop a water balance modeling scheme integrating multisource hydrometeorological remote sensing data.
  • Publish scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and deliver presentations and progress reports.
