Abstract

A study was carried out at Ribera Salada Catchment (NE Spain), affected by the abandonment of agriculture since 1950s, to determine the components of water budget under different land uses. Field monitoring consisted of precipitation and evapotranspiration (ET) measurements, surface water collection with runoff boxes, continuous soil water measurement with capacitance probes, throughfall pluviometers and stem flow rings. The AA. present the results of applying a weekly water balance in 6 stations over 2 years (2004-2005). The water balance was measured at each station. They applied the TOPLATS model a fully process-based hydrologic model, simulating all processes related to the hydrologic cycle. The results obtained indicated that the model accurately predicted the water budget of the watersheds measured in both years
