How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

A new method of participatory decision support that can be used in transboundary basins is presented. The framework of this method relies first on the creation of a transboundary geographic information system database to store hydrologic data and allow easy access to data from stakeholders. A participatory hydro-political framework is developed to...
The Amazon River Basin is the largest rainforest in the world. Long-term changes in precipitation trends in the basin can affect the continental water balance and the world's climate. The precipitation trends in the basin are not spatially uniform; estimating these trends only at locations where station data are available has an inherent bias. In t...
After the launch of the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission in 2014, many Satellite Precipitation Products (SPPs) are available at finer spatiotemporal resolution and/or with reduced latency, potentially increasing the applicability of SPPs for Near Real-Time (NRT) applications. Therefore, there is a need to evaluate the NRT SPPs in the...
Actual evapotranspiration (ET) is a major component of the water balance. While several international flux measurement programs have been executed in the tropical rain forest of the Amazon, those measurements represent the evaporative process at a few selected sites only. The aim of this study is to obtain the spatial distribution of ET, using remo...
The Land Data Assimilation System (LDAS) is a model developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for the purpose of quantifying the heat and water fluxes between the atmosphere and the land-surface hydrology. LDAS has two forms: National (NLDAS) and Global (GLDAS). The NLDAS grid is 1/8° with hourly and monthly estimates si...
A new method of participatory decision support that can be used in transboundary basins is presented. The framework of this method relies first on the creation of a transboundary geographic information system database to store hydrologic data and allow easy access to data by stakeholders. Results show that the countries of the Jordan River could be...
This article analyzes the water security risks in the Orontes basin shared between Syria, Lebanon and Turkey. A complete description of the watershed's hydrography and hydrology is presented, and then, using a geographic database, an optimization method is used based on the nine factors of the UN Convention to allocate water equitably between the c...
The Orontes River Basin is shared among Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey. These waters are a critical resource for the development of these co-riparians in terms of both water and national security. This article presents the results of a comprehensive institutional study of river basin agreement and conflicts in the Orontes Basin since the 1920s. This ar...
World Water Online is a global system of hydrologic data. It is an integration of geospatial and temporal information across spatial scales: global, national, regional and local. This global water information system has no parallel, and its scope would be extended with the active participation of the global water community. Its consolidation depend...
Tethys Platform is an open source software package based on the Django framework and Python programming language. Tethys web apps are built using a Python-powered Software Development Kit. In addition to the tools provided by Tethys, you can incorporate any Python module that your app needs to work with your models and data.
