Hydrologic modeling of wetlands

Elias Getahun, Misganaw Demissie

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter provides a brief compilation of reference works on hydrologic modeling of wetlands. Hydrology, which is the study of water circulation and its constituents through a water cycle on or near the land surface, is the primary driving force determining the structure and functions of wetlands. Developing a robust wetland model requires understanding the main hydrologic processes occurring in its drainage area. Succinct discussions of hydrologic model types, simulation models for wetland hydrology, and key modeling considerations are presented here.
