Abstract

In an attempt to explore the boundary conditions for water management in Flanders, water balance computations are carried out for the Flemish Region, and for 27 geographical subregions as defined in the General Water Treatment Scheme of the Flemisch Government. In a first phase more than 50 gauged catchments are studied. The hydrological and hydrometeorological data collected during the past 40 years are incorporated in the study. A lumped system mathematical model, WABAM (Water Balance Model), calculating the major terms of the water balance on a monthly time base, is calibrated for these catchments. The regional variation in the water balance is analysed, which allows for an extrapolation of the results over larger geographical units. - (Les AA.)
