Hydrological Processes (HYDROL PROCESS )
Hydrological Processes is an international journal devoted to the publication of original scientific and technical papers in hydrology. The objective of these communications is to improve our understanding of hydrological processes. The scope of the journal encompasses disciplines focussing on the physical biogeochemical mathematical and methodological aspects of hydrological processes together with research on instrumentation and techniques. The journal also publishes several issues annually which relate to themes emergent from conferences hydrological science societies and key research topics identified by editorial board members. HP welcomes the submission of comment/reply on previously published papers. Such submissions should preferably be in the form of a short paper not exceeding 2000 words and relate to papers previously published in HP. All papers for HP should be prepared in accordance with the notes for contributors (http:// www.interscience.wiley.com/jpages/0885-6087/authors.html). Submit papers to the Editor-in-chief of HP or one of the two Associate Editors HPToday is devoted to research and sources of information which are considered to be deserving of rapid dissemination to hydrologists. As such it should be seen as a forum for rapid scientific communication and as a vehicle for up-to-date dialogues in hydrological sciences. HPToday includes invited commentaries letters to the editor refereed scientific briefings current awareness book reviews listing and reviews of internet sites software conference listings and industry updates. Submission information can be found in the HPToday section.

ABSTRACT: Analytical models have been exhaustively used to study simple seawater intrusion problems and the sustainable management of groundwater resources in coastal aquifers because of its simplicity, easy implementation, and low computational cost. Most of these models are based on the sharp-interface approximation and the Ghyben–Herzberg relation, and their governing equations are expressed in terms of a single potential theory to calculate critical pumping rates in a coastal pumping scenario. The Ghyben–Herzberg approach neglects mixing of fresh water and seawater and implicitly assumes that salt water remains static. Therefore, the results of the analytical solutions may be inaccurate and unacceptable for some real-complex case studies. This paper provides insight into the validity of sharp-interface models to deal with seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers, i.e. when they can be applied to obtain accurate enough results. For that purpose, this work compares sharp-interface solutions, based on the Ghyben–Herzberg approach, with numerical three-dimensional variable-density flow simulations for a set of heterogeneous groundwater flow and mass transport parameters, and different scenarios of spatially distributed recharge values and spatial wells placement. The numerical experiment has been carried out in a 3D unconfined synthetic aquifer using the finite difference numerical code SEAWAT for solving the coupled partial differential equations of flow and density-dependent transport. This paper finds under which situations the sharp-interface solution gives good predictions in terms of seawater penetration, transition zone width and critical pumping rates. Additionally, the simulation runs indicate to which parameters and scenarios the results are more sensitive.Hydrological Processes 01/2014;

ABSTRACT: The hydrology of boreal regions is strongly influenced by seasonal snow accumulation and melt. In this study, we compare simulations of snow water equivalent (SWE) and streamflow by using the hydrological model HYDROTEL with two contrasting approaches for snow modelling: a mixed degree-day/energy balance model (small number of inputs, but several calibration parameters needed) and the thermodynamic model CROCUS (large number of inputs, but no calibration parameter needed). The study site, in Northern Quebec, Canada was equipped with a ground-based gamma ray sensor measuring the SWE continuously for 5 years in a small forest clearing. The first simulation of CROCUS showed a tendency to underestimate SWE, attributable to bias in the meteorological inputs. We found that it was appropriate to use a threshold of 2 °C to separate rain and snow. We also applied a correction to account for snowfall undercatch by the precipitation gauge. After these modifications to the input dataset, we noticed that CROCUS clearly overestimated the SWE, likely as a result of not including loss in SWE because of blowing snow sublimation and relocation. To correct this, we included into CROCUS a simple parameterisation effective after a certain wind speed threshold, after which the thermodynamic model performed much better than the traditional mixed degree-day/energy balance model. HYDROTEL was then used to simulate streamflow with both snow models. With CROCUS, the main peak flow could be captured, but the second peak because of delayed snowmelt from forested areas could not be reproduced due to a lack of sub-canopy radiation data to feed CROCUS. Despite the relative homogeneity of the boreal landscape, data inputs from each land cover type are needed to generate satisfying simulation of the spring runoff.Hydrological Processes 11/2013;

ABSTRACT: Shaw and Riha (2011) point-out that common, empirical, temperature-based calculations of PET are likely to overestimate PET predictions under increasing temperatures associated with climate change. An unresolved, related issue is whether one can make reliable estimates of PET under future climate conditions (specifically higher air temperatures) using an energy budget approach but estimating the relevant variables using only temperature data. We addressed this issue using the Priestly-Taylor equation and approximating the net-radiation and slope of the vapor pressure-temperature function from air temperature, Julian date, and latitude. Here we produce a variant of Figure 1 from Shaw and Riha (2011), in which we include this intermediate method, i.e., approximated energy-budget. Our method was not as sensitive to temperature increases as the fully empirical temperature-based models used by Shaw and Riha and highlights some potential interactions between temperature and net-radiation that might not be apparent in their initial analysis.Hydrological Processes 11/2013; 27(24):3511-3515.

ABSTRACT: The surface energy balance algorithm for land method was used in this study to calculate the evapotranspiration (ET) rate for the middle reaches of the Heihe River Basin, Gansu Province, China, to analyse ET distribution within the oasis and the surrounding desert and, especially, on the edge zone of the oasis. Five profile graphs were created vertical to the river. Because of the inverse humidity phenomenon, the least amount of evapotranspiration occurred on the desert close to the oasis. The average evapotranspiration rate was roughly proportioned from the edge of the oasis to inside and outside its boundary. Two meteorological ground stations located close to the oasis edge showed a notable difference in net radiation flux that led to the difference found in ET. The primary reason for the significant differences observed in net radiation may be largely the result of differences in flux reflectivity and surface temperature. Meteorological data show that water supply also played an important role. Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.Hydrological Processes 11/2013; 27(24):3409-3414.
