Why use the Geographic Catchment Water Balance Estimator?

  • To understand how physical water risks occur in your catchment during the year

  • To simplify water stewardship implementation

  • To monitor how the water balance of your catchment changes over the months and years

Can I use the tool by myself?

No, the tool is standalone code and is used in projects by GSI experts.

What is Geographic Catchment Water Balance Estimator?

The Monthly Catchment Water Balance Estimator estimates a near real time  monthly catchment water balance as change in catchment level water storage on the basis of remotely sensed ET and Rainfall and flow through a simple Runoff model. It follows the Water Balance methodology as described in the GSI Technical Paper 1.
