IAI-FinalReport_ISP3_022: Benefits of Incorporating ENSO Forecasts into Reservoir Operation and Hydro-electric Power Distribution Procedure
Entry ID: IAIDIS520

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset refers to the Final Report of the ISP round III project number
022, which has the name "Benefits of Incorporating ENSO Forecasts into
Reservoir Operation and Hydro-electric Power Distribution Procedures". This
research (i) seeks to improve forecasts of streamflow into the largest
hydro-power reservoirs in Colombia, Costa Rica and Panama, (ii) to incorporate
that forecasting methodology into the overall operation of the respective
national hydroelectric power schemes, and (iii) to estimate the financial
benefits of their combined applications. The final report for this project can
be downloaded from this page
ftp://disbr1.iai.int/iai/isp3/022-Waylen/Final_Report.pd. Principal
Investigator: Peter Waylen, prwaylen@geog.ufl.edu, University of Florida.
