|Abstract:||This second part of the paper presents the details
of the eco-hydrological model SWIM simulating the natural
water supply and its coupling to WBalMo, a water management
Based on the climate scenarios of the STAR model, SWIM
simulates the natural water and matter fluxes for the entire
Elbe River area. All relevant processes are modelled for hydrotopes
and the resulting discharges are accumulated in subbasins.
The output data are input for the water management
model WBalMo and the quality models Moneris and QSim.
WBalMo takes storage management, inputs and withdrawals
into account and analyses how demands by industry,
power plants and households will be met at changing natural
supply conditions. Some of the first results shall be presented
