FutureWater has recently been granted a subsidy from the Netherlands Agency for Aerospace Programmes (NIVR) for a research project in the Krishna basin in India. Together with the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) FutureWater has embarked on an endeavor to systematically link simulation models and Remote Sensing derived information to successfully support water resources planning in a complex water scarce environment. For a 40.000 km2 sub-basin of the Krishna basin a process based hydrological model will be built and Remote Sensing derived evapotranspiration maps will be used in an advanced auto-calibration algorithm. The successful integration will open fascinating possibilities for future application in similar areas.
