5. Assessing the application of climate forecast system reanalysis (CFSR) data for flow simulation in Dong Nai river basin using SWAT model

Khoa Thi Văn, Khánh Đỗ Xuân


Data always play animportant role in hydrological models for simulating water resources system. However, data scarcity or shortage is always a common issue of users. In this study, two data setsof CFSR and conventional gauges were applied for the Soil and Water Assessment Tool model in the Dong Nai River basin; The results were subsequently compared to the observed discharge to assess the efficiency of the CFRS data in the simulation. The comparison showed good results with R2 = 0.77 and Nash–Sutcliffe coefficient is 0.88. This shows high potential of using free-of-charge CFSR data to replace conventional data when data is insufficient or devoid.
