Step by Step Guide: Hydro-BID Manual
The following manual has been prepared with the idea of facilitating the learning process in the use of the Hydro-BID model and the Analytical Hydrographic Database for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC-AHD). The instructions below are supported by the material distributed in Hydro-BID’s installation package and that is based on the simplified case study of a River basin in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil. By following the instructions you should be able to understand how to set up a simulation in Hydro-BID, how to proceed for the interpolation of climate data, how to calibrate the model and how to visualize the results obtained. The technical information relating to the model and the LAC-AHD database can be obtained by downloading the technical notes from our website www.hydrobidlac.org.
