2.1.1 Geography


The Galilee subregion encompasses a large area (248,000 km2) and has sparse climatic data coverage. 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 (from January 1980 to December 2009) monthly values of precipitation (P) and maximum (Tmax) and minimum (Tmin) temperatures were calculated along with root mean square error (RMSE) values for the same variables. Results showed relative errors of 84.7%, 1% and 3% in P, Tmax, and Tmin respectively.
