About the project

In this project, the variability of water quality parameters in the Hablerood River was investigated under different hydrologic conditions. First, hydrologic conditions of the river were evaluated ysung the well-known Standard Precipitation Index (SPI) with normal distribution function in four different stations located in various sections of the river. The water quality parameters of the river has been simulated by QUAL2K and compared in different hydrologic conditions. The results showed unfavorable situation of quality parameters during drought years.
