    Author(s): Solafa Babiker*, Israa Gafar and Elbasri Abulgasim

    This study aims to model and combine the eco-hydrological components to evaluate its impact on the potential water flow of selected catchment in eastern Sudan. Spatial variability of landcover types and magnitudes was assessed using landsat and sentinel 2 imageries for years 1996, 2011 and 2018, topographic and soil type factors were used to assess the potentiality for runoff at sub catchment level using CN approach. Rainfall records, CN map and one gauge readings for stream discharge were used to simulate the hydrograph using 10 years return period and assess volumetric flow at sub-catchment level. Evaluation of the potentiality of the area for high runoff and prediction of water quantity produced by the catchment is crucial for dry lands in Africa generally and in Sudan. Land cover changes show the dominance of agricultural lands and reduction in natural veget.. Read More»
