Présentation
The major water sources of many towns and cities that suffer from water deficit in Córdoba province are located on the Sierras Grandes. Hydrological models allow us to study and simplify the functions and the mechanisms that regulate the hydrological cycle, improving tools to understand the water scarcity problem and its impact on the vegetation and the society. To provide relevant information for integrated water management in the region, two hydrological models were implemented in the San Antonio River Basin. The models J2000g and J2K were used for monitoring and drought forecast, and to study the basin’s ecohydrology. Satellite information and hidrometereological data were used to calibrate the models and characterize the study area. The information system developed for the study area is used by public institutions for data management. Both hydrological models showed a good performance, reaching high efficiency values. They are both operative and are applied in low flow forecast during the dry season, providing information to public organisms of water management and distribution. Aditionally, the effect of different drought scenarios in the basin’s functioning and water availability was studied. The results are useful to understand the hydrological cycle behavior and its components under climatic scenarios and to improve water management. Also in combination with satellite data increased the knowledge on the influence that local vegetation exerts on the water balance. The developments of this thesis have potential applications in different areas of management, such as water resources, livestock planning, fire management, mitigation and early warning of extreme climatic events and territorial planning. Additionally, all the methods and systems can be used to further research in a regional area and can therefore be implemented in neighbor basins.
