  Title (up) A comparative study of available water in the major river basins of the world Type Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication Journal of Hydrology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 567 Issue Pages 510-532  
  Keywords Water resources, Hydrological balance, Models, Satellite data, Droughts and floods  
  Abstract “Numerous large river basins of the world have few and irregular observations of the components of the terrestrial hydrological cycle with the exception of stream gauges at a few locations and at the outlet along with sparsely distributed rain gauges. Using observations from satellite sensors and output from global land surface models, it is possible to study these under-observed river basins. With populations greater than a billion people, some of these rivers (e.g., the Ganga-Brahmaputra, the Yangtze, the Nile and the Mekong) are the economic engines of the countries they transect, yet thorough assessment of their flow dynamics and variability in regard to water resource management is still lacking. In this paper, we use soil moisture (0âEUR”2âEUR¯m

  Title (up) A LISFLOOD-FP hydraulic model of the middle reach of the Congo Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Journal of Hydrology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 580 Issue Pages 124203  
  Keywords Hydraulic modelling, Congo, Altimetry, Surface water  
  Abstract In this paper we attempt to produce a first hydrodynamic model of the middle reach of the Congo river system in order to understand what controls this rivers unique bimodal flood pulse. The model covers the area between Kisangani and Kinshasa on the main stem and includes the major tributaries and the Cuvette Centrale wetland, one of the world's largest and most understudied lowland regions. A mixture of in-situ discharges and modelled discharge from a basin-wide catchment hydrology model were used to force a four-kilometre resolution hydrodynamic simulation developed using the LISFLOOD-FP model. River channels are represented as sub-grid scale features and their width is therefore decoupled from that of the over-lying floodplain grid. Unknown channel friction and bathymetry parameters were calibrated using ERS-2 and Envisat satellite altimetry measurements of channel water level. The calibrated model simulated channel water surface elevations across the domain with a bias and root mean square error of 0.185 and 0.842 m respectively. The value for root mean squared error is close to that obtained for comparisons of ERS-2 and Envisat satellite altimetry to in-situ water elevation data in similar basins (0.79 m and 0.47 m respectively). The model results imply that the bimodal annual pattern of Congo river discharge is predominantly a hydrological rather than hydraulically-controlled feature, with the channel-floodplain interactions and river constrictions having only a modest impact on the flood wave propagation. Nevertheless, and counter to current understanding, we find that interactions between channels and floodplains do however occur extensively, with over 2100 km of the 13,000 km of channel network in the model identified as zones where water is actively exchanged between channels and floodplains. Whilst the water volume that is exchanged with the floodplain is substantially less than for other large rivers, our results imply that channel-floodplain interactions are a significant feature of Congo flood wave propagation. Overall the model provides insights into the hydraulics of this understudied system that can next be tested both in the field and through more detailed modelling studies.
