Hydro-BID Case Study No. 3: Impact of El Niño Events on Sediment Loading in the Chancay-Lambayeque Basin, Peru

Dec 2016
Nalesso, Mauro
This is the third case study of the "Hydro-BID Applications" series and it was performed as part of an on-going effort to build the basin modeling skills of professional staff working for the ANA (Peru’s National Water Authority), and to demonstrate capabilities of the Hydro-BID system relevant to water resources management challenges in Peru. A member of ANA’s regional staff developed the Hydro-BID model for the Chancay-Lambayeque basin, with technical support from the IDB and RTI. Then, the model was used to demonstrate the use of a new Hydro-BID module for simulating sediment loading.
