About this presentation

This study aims to provide water balance of boreal watersheds of northeastern BC using the MIKE SHE hydrological model. More specifically, this study intends to quantify historical and regional water balances of two boreal watersheds—the Coles Lake and Tsea Lake watersheds—and their associated hydrological processes. Therefore, hydrological components within these watersheds are quantified through a combination of intensive fieldwork, observation data analysis, and numerical modeling.
