Modelling dynamic water redistribution patterns in arid catchments in the Negev Desert of Israel

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The process of water redistribution at catchment scale is studied with the landscape process model LAPSUS, mainly used for erosion and sedimentation modelling. LAPSUS, formerly applied in Mediterranean climates, is modified to deal with the arid climate of the Negev Desert of Israel. Daily event based model runs were used instead of yearly model runs, and the infiltration module was modified to better represent the spatial diversity in water availability in an arid catchment. The model is calibrated for 2 small catchments in the Negev Desert, Halluqim and Avdat. The modelled infiltration patterns are compared with vegetation cover in the catchments and the results are discussed
