Using the fantastic Precipitation Dataset MSWEP V2.1 to force and calibrate the TOPKAPI-eXtended Hydrological Model within the Non-Profit GH2MF2 Project
In the Non-Profit GH2MF2 project the MSWEP V2.1 product dataset (Tile 243) is being used to force and calibrate the physically distributed hydrological model based on the Koshi River Basin together with the dataset derived from the CFSR Reanalysis of Temperature.
The observed flow data (Gauge Stations) for calibrate the Hydrological model on Koshi River Basin has been kindly provided by Department of Hydrology and Meteorology, Ministry of Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation – Government of Nepal
The Dataset MSWEP in NetCDF format of Tile 243 used in this project can be downloaded at the following link: MSWEP-KOSHI RIVER BASIN
By using MSWEP in any publication you agree to cite Beck et al. (2017). The dataset is being developed by Hylke Beck (Princeton University, Princeton, USA) in collaboration with Ming Pan, Eric Wood (Princeton University, Princeton, USA), Albert van Dijk (ANU, Canberra, Australia), Ad de Roo (JRC, Ispra, Italy), Vincenzo Levizzani (CNR-ISAC, Bologna, Italy), Jaap Schellekens (Deltares, Delft, The Netherlands), Diego Miralles (VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands), and Brecht Martens (Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium). We gratefully acknowledge the precipitation dataset developers for producing and making available their datasets. The work was supported through IPA support for Hylke Beck from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ International Center for Integrated Water Resources Management (ICIWaRM), under the auspices of UNESCO, to further develop a Latin America and Caribbean Drought Monitor.
