This work aims to understand and quantify the relationship between the spatial and temporal characteristics of meteorological drought and the availability of water resources in a data-scarce and mountainous Chilean catchment. The Imperial River Basin is chosen as study area for this project because it has been affected by a severe meteorological drought since 2009, and currently there are no hydrological studies quantifying the impacts thereof. In the scope of this project, a novel procedure that combines SRFE and satellite-based snow-cover estimates with different hydrological model structures will be applied, in order to reliably predict low flow events at basin scale.
