Soil-Water Balance Calculations for an FAO/UNESCO Sponsored Project
in West Africa
This research was conducted as part of the FAO/UNESCO
Water Balance of Africa Project . This research project included a study of
the hydrology of the Niger River basin in West Africa. As part of
this assessment, I made a climatological study of the region using a simple
soil "bucket" model. A description of the methodology
and results for this study is available. In work related to this project,
I recently traveled to Rabat, Morocco, to assist Prof. David Maidment in
giving a GIS
and hydrology short-course(Nov. 15 - 17, 1996). If you like, you can
try a sample
exercise for making soil-water balance calculations in Texas or Morocco.
