BILAN is a comprehensive conceptual model in a daily/monthly structure (the diagram is shown in Fig. 1), simulating the components of the hydrological balance in a basin. Although its development was started at TGM WRI at the beginning of 1990s, it is a model that is still used as a standard in the Czech Republic… Read more »
In the Karlovy Vary district, areas with lack of drinking and industrial water were identified. Since 2015, in cooperation of TGM WRI, p. r. i., and state enterprise Povodí Ohře a project called „Increasing water resources availability in selected regions of Karlovy Vary district“ is financed
The BILAN model has been used in a number of research projects and hydrological studies dealing with estimation of water balance for European catchments. This paper is focused on the recent development of the model during last years. The model changes include both core development (new variables representing water use, optional calibration for a system of catchments, saving of state variables) and enhanced user interface that was extended by new graphical outputs and controls allowing interactive use of the model.
The article presents the applied methodology and description of the most important results achieved in the project.
