Hydrological simulations for Costa Rica from 1985 to 2019 using HYPE CR 1.0

dataset
posted on 15.09.2020 by Arciniega-Esparza, Saúl, Birkel, Christian

This dataset corresponds to the hydrological simulations of 605 catchments in Costa Rica using the HYPE CR 1.0 for the period from 1985 to 2019.

The conceptual HYPE (Hydrological Predictions for the Environment) model was used to assess the water resources of tropical Costa Rica at a national scale at daily scale using adjusted global topography, soil, land use, and remotely-sensed climate products to force, calibrate and independently evaluate the model.

 A bias corrected temperature data from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and CHIRPS (Climate Hazards Group InfraRed Precipitation with Station data) precipitation were used as model forcings. Daily streamflow from 13 gauges for the period 1990-2003 and monthly MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) potential evapotranspiration (PET) and actual evapotranspiration (AET) for the period 2000-2014 were used to calibrate and evaluate the model.

Here, we presented the results of our calibrated HYPE model for Costa Rica (HYPE CR) version 1.0.
