ACCWA attends GESOC 202217th November 2022
ACCWA attended the Symposium on Water Management in Semi-arid areas, Tools and Global changes (GESOC) 2022, that took place from the 7th to the 10th of November in Marrakech (Morocco). In this international meeting, some ACCWA members presented their latest research seeking to understand and manage the hydrological processes at work in these regions. The ACCWA works presented were:
- R. Clavera-Gispert, from Observatori de l’Ebre (Universitat Ramon Llull – CSIC): ‘Future Pyrenees water cycle evolution combining hydrological models’.
- Abdelghaffar Ata, from INRGREF: ‘Évaluation spatiotemporelle de l’évapotranspiration réelle sur le basin versant Lebna nord-est de la Tunisie’.
- J. Casadesus, from IRTA: ‘irriTer, a digital twin assimilating biophysical parameters of vegetation to assess and forecast site-specific crop water requirements at district scale’.
- J. Bellvert, from Institute of AgriFood Research and Technology, ‘Analysis and forecast of crop water demand of some irrigation districts across Southeastern Ebro’s river basin (Catalonia, Spain): estimation of ET through Copernicus-based Inputs’.
- G. Paolini, from isardSAT: ‘Classification of Irrigation Systems at Field Level from Remotely Sensed Soil Moisture and Actual Evapotranspiration Time-Series’.
- N. Ouaadi, from CESBIO: ‘Estimation of the FAO-56 crop coefficient of winter wheat from synthetic aperture radar data’.
- E. Ayari, from Carthage University, National Agronomic Institute of Tunisia (GREEN-TEAM): ‘Potential of the modified water cloud model to retrieve soil moisture within a drip irrigation context in pepper fields using SAR data’.
- P. Laluet, from CESBIO: ‘A combined crop water balance modeling and remote sensing approach for estimating deep percolation from the field to the irrigation district’.
- A. Belgacem, from University of Jendouba-High School of Engineering: ‘Modeling of citrus evapotranspiration under different water supply conditions: case study of Beni Khalled’.
- K. Ibba, from Laboratoire des Procèdes pour l'Energie Durable et Environnement (ProcEDE): ‘Agronomical response of Olea europaea L. cultivar Menara to sustained and regulated deficit irrigation’.
- A. Barella-Ortiz, from Observatori de l’Ebre (Universitat Ramon Llull – CSIC): ‘Simulation of irrigation in the Ebro River basin: new meteorological and physiographical datasets to better describe agriculture’.
- H. Bouchra Ait, from Université Mohammed VI Polytechnique, Center for remote sensing applications: ‘Using satellite remote sensing data to describe the environmental process that links the water, energy, and carbon cycles at the surface’.
Pioneer method to classify irrigation types using remote sensing data can improve water management
A new study by isardSAT and IRTA provides for the first time a method to classify irrigation systems using remote sensing.
Satellite data predicts lower wheat crop yield
The anomaly in soil moisture observed by the Ebro drought monitor in March 2022 – within the EU’s H2020 ACCWA project – has proven to be a critical indicator of the wheat yield decrease at the end of the season.
