Description:the Reservoir application predicts the behaviour of a reservoir during a determined month or during a period of several months
Abstract:Having the purpose of optimizing water resources management, focusing on handling reservoirs, the Reservoir application predicts the behaviour of a reservoir during a determined month or during a period of several months, based on the available weather forecast, the history of water precipitation, and on the results of the simulated current scenario, making it easier to make decisions regarding water resources destination. The Reservoir application is based on simulations over the water balance for different reservoirs of interest. In this version of the application, a methodology that uses consensus forecast for statistical resampling of the data was implemented. This forecast is usually set by a group of scientists that, after a deep analysis of the numerical forecasts and the evolution of the global and regional oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the past months, disclose a qualitative climate prognostic for the next rainy season.
