dc.description.abstractA preliminary hydrologic regional conceptual model was developed for a coastal tropical basin and implemented in an integrated, fully distributed, physically based, numerical model. The model attempts to include features of both the surface and subsurface hydrologic systems. During the development of the model, a geographic information system was developed to storage, manage, and process geographic information; and to produce the inputs required by the numerical model. Some preliminary runs were performed to check the response of the model to variation of some parameter values, in terms of the aggregated total annual discharge of two rivers at flow gauging stations, and the ground-water head at some locations within the study area. Limitations and assumptions of the conceptual model were stated; and recommendations for its future refinement and calibration are presented.en_US
dc.description.abstractEl objetivo principal de esta investigación fue desarrollar un modelo hidrológico conceptual preliminar a escala regional que tuviera en cuenta características de los sistemas de agua superficial y subterránea para una cuenca costera tropical; e implementarlo en un modelo numérico distribuido físicamente basado. Un sistema de información geográfica fue desarrollado para almacenar y procesar la información espacial y generar la información requerida por el modelo numérico. Se llevaron a cabo algunas simulaciones preliminares con el modelo con el propósito de evaluar sus respuestas ante el cambio en el valor de algunos parámetros, en términos del caudal total anual combinado de los dos principales ríos que drenan el área en sitios de estaciones de aforo; y los niveles potenciométricos de agua subterránea para algunos sitios dentro del área de estudio. La investigación describe las limitaciones del modelo y da recomendaciones para su refinamiento y calibración en futuros estudios.en_US
