Operational flood forecasting in Yamuna River by the application of Sacramento conceptual model
In the present paper, an attempt has been made to apply to Sacramento river fore-cast model to Yamuna catchment upto Kalanaur for operational purposes. For this purpose the model was calibrated using the hydrometeorological data for the years 1976 and 1977 and tested for the historical flood of September 1978 in river Yamuna. The six hourly peak discharge at Kalanaur on the early morning of 3 September 1978 was about 6.7 lakh cusecs as computed by the model, on the basis of six hourly mean precipitation input.
