  • 1.  Water management under climate change

    Posted 09-29-2022 04:06 PM
    Hello everyone!
    I would like to have hydrological modeling to analyze the effects of climate change in a glacierized region that is extremely vulnerable to temperature rise. I have prepared the precipitation and Max & Min air temperature considering RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 scenarios from MIROC5 and downscaled the obtained data using CMhyd, could you guide me please how to obtain and downscale other weather data like relative humidity, solar radiation, and wind speed?
    I am using the SWAT model.

    Hi Sayed,

    It sounds like you're working on some really interesting stuff. I wish I had something helpful to share with you, but your project is pretty far outside of my area of knowledge. I know in the USA, its possible to get the weather data that you are looking for from NOAA via certain airport measurements. I don't know if your project location is close enough to any of them to be useful though. You can look through what types of data are available here:

    Good luck!

    I know those data is available in your locals for the projects, specifically called the surveying and mapping (topography, geology, weather) data from companies, institution, laboratories, etc. and they are for sale. Maybe you can check your locals if you can buy data from whichever available. I remeber my coach in OJT bring me with him to buy some data he will be needing in his ARCGIS mapping.
