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
Sercan is a highly motivated water resources engineer experienced in integrated hydrological modeling at the regional or watershed scales, water budget development, groundwater substitution transfers and managed aquifer recharge. He has developed several IWFM applications and has been supporting the development and maintenance of many other groundwater models. He has a strong theoretical background and he is proficient in numerical models, programming, and GIS tools.

The Fokker-Planck equation (FPE) methodology was applied to the transient state confined groundwater flow equation under the initial and boundary conditions leading to the Theis problem. The differential Theis equation was transformed to the FPE form, which describes the evolution of the probability density function of the state variable for this s...
Conference Paper
Watershed Environmental Hydrology Hydro-Climate Model (WEHY-HCM) was used to simulate the surface flows of the Upper Middle Fork (UMF) Watershed under different climate conditions. Long-term historical atmospheric conditions over the Middle Fork Feather River Basin were reconstructed for the 63-year period between October 1950 and September 2013 by...
Conference Paper
The Grizzly Valley Dam is an earth and rockfill dam located in the Lake Davis Basin of the Feather River Watershed, which is in California’s northern Sierra Nevada. The dam is situated just downstream of Lake Davis, with the purposes of water supply (to Portola), fish and wildlife enhancement, streamflow enhancement, as well as recreation. Historic...
Conference Paper
Long-term historical precipitation over Northern California was reconstructed for 137 water years from October, 1871 through September, 2008 by dynamical downscaling based on NOAA Twentieth Century Reanalysis version 2 (20CRv2). The annual maximum values of 6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, 72-, and 96-hour basin-average precipitation were obtained from the recon...
