Watershed Modeling of The Western Coast Wadis of Egypt

Part of: Hydraulics/Hydrology of Arid Lands (H²AL)


The main goal of this paper is to present the water resources assessment from both surface and ground-water resvoirs of the western coast watersheds in Egypt. Two submodels were used for this purpose to serve this arid and semi-arid zone. The two submodels are; one to model the rainfall runoff relations and the other one to simulate the ground-water potentiality within the watershed boundaries. The results obtained from those submodels were calibrated and then checked with some recorded data which showed a good agreement between them.
