Coordination in large-scale models in water resources engineering: challenges for water resilience
Complex, large-scale models in water resources engineering are increasingly needed to answer pressing questions on the resilience of coupled human and natural systems to natural hazards – e.g., floods and droughts. Uncertainties abound on the nature and magnitude of future hazards, as well as on the state of the infrastructure, technologies, ecosystems and societies these threats will impact. To address these questions requires the integration of natural and anthropic processes at a range of scales.
This seminar will illustrate how model diagnostic can answer this question by focusing on how commonly employed representations of reservoir operations in large-scale hydrological models can influence our appraisal of water-related extremes. It will use the state-of-the-art representation of reservoirs contained in the Water Balance Model (WBM), a high-profile large-scale hydrological model, applied to a reservoir cascade in the Upper Snake River Basin in the American West.
