This paper employs multiple indices of drought to study occurrence of severe prolonged drought in climate projects over the Abbay and Tekeze sub-basins in the Eastern Nile. It assesses the impacts of the droughts on the storage level in the Aswan High Dam.:
The paper presents an approach for determining the best satellite-based rainfall datasets that can support water resources assessment in data-scarce regions. Using the Blue Nile, Tezere and Atbara sub-basins, the method starts by testing the ability of different satellite-based rainfall datasets to drive hydrological models of the sub-basins. The simulated flows are then compared with field-based stream flow data to identify the data set that closely reproduces the measured record.
