Performance of bias corrected MPEG rainfall estimate for rainfall-runoff simulation in the upper Blue Nile Basin, Ethiopia
(Journal of Hydrology,, 2018)
In many developing countries and remote areas of important ecosystems, good quality precipitation data are neither available nor readily accessible. Satellite observations and processing algorithms are being extensively ...
Modeling the Impacts of Conservation Agriculture with a Drip Irrigation System on the Hydrology and Water Management in Sub-Saharan Africa
The agricultural system in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is dominated by traditional farming practices with poor soil and water management, which contributes to soil degradation and low crop productivity. This study integrated ...
Effect of climate change on land suitability for surface irrigation and irrigation potential of the shallow groundwater in Ghana
(Computers and Electronics in Agriculture, 2019)
Estimating the potential land resources suitable for irrigation and evaluating the possible impact of climate change on land suitability is essential for planning a sustainable agricultural system. This study applied a ...
Evaluation and prediction of land use/land cover changes in the Andassa watershed, Blue Nile Basin, Ethiopia
(Environmental Systems Research, 2017)
BackgroundLand use/land cover (LU/LC) change is the challenging and continuous drivers of environment change. Understanding the rate and process of change is, therefore, basic for managing the environment. This study was ...
Uncertainty in a Lumped and a Semi-Distributed Model for Discharge Prediction in Ghatshila Catchment
Hydrologic simulations of different models have direct impact on the accuracy of discharge prediction because of the diverse model structure. This study is an attempt to comprehend the uncertainty in discharge prediction ...
Assessing potential land suitable for surface irrigation using groundwater in Ethiopia
(Applied Geography, 2017)
Although Ethiopia has abundant land for irrigation, only a fraction of its potential land is being utilized.This study evaluates suitability of lands for irrigation using groundwater in Ethiopia using GIS-basedMulti-Criteria ...
Scaling-up Conservation Agriculture Production System (CAPS) with Drip Irrigation by Integrating MCE Technique and the APEX Model
The conservation agriculture production system (CAPS) approach with drip irrigation has proven to have the potential to improve water management and food production in Ethiopia. A method of scaling-up crop yield under CAPS ...
Conservation Agriculture Saves Irrigation Water in the Dry Monsoon Phase in the Ethiopian Highlands
Water resources in sub-Saharan Africa are more overstressed than in many other regions of the world. Experiments on commercial farms have shown that conservation agriculture (CA) can save water and improve the soil. ...
Evaluating hydrologic responses to soil characteristics using SWAT model in a paired-watersheds in the Upper Blue Nile Basin
Watershed responses are affected by the watershed characteristics and rainfall events. The characteristics of soil layers are among the fundamental characteristics of a watershed and they are input to hydrologic modeling ...
