H137:
Water and Society: Towards Improved Modeling of Surface Water Extraction, Storage, and Allocation in Global-Scale Hydrological Analysis





Session ID#: 23364

Session Description:
This session concerns advances in the modeling of surface water management in global and regional studies. Global hydrological models support a variety of research applications, including water scarcity analysis, integrated assessment modeling, and nexus studies exploring interdependencies between water, energy, and food. A major challenge in developing such models is correct representation of human interventions to the water cycle, including extraction, storage, allocation, and consumption of water. New data products and creative modeling approaches are required to compensate for a lack of observed water management decisions with global coverage. We invite abstracts covering a range of topics relating to modeling of surface water management at the global/region scale, including simulation of reservoir storages and operator behaviors, estimation of demands for water at gridded or basin scales, and innovative uses of secondary data products (e.g., satellite images). Results from global scale analyses that incorporate reservoir models are particularly encouraged.
