2.1.1 Geography

Summary

This section provides an analysis of the errors associated with the climate data used for the water balance modelling. To characterise errors of the input climate data, the long-term monthly values of precipitation (P), and maximum (Tmax) and minimum (Tmin) temperatures were calculated along with root-mean-square error (RMSE) mean values for the same variables for the period January 1980 to December 2009. Results showed relative errors of 47.5%, 2%, and 8% in P, Tmax, and Tmin, respectively (where relative error is calculated by dividing the monthly RMSE mean grid by the monthly mean grids).
