2.1.1 Geography


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).
