ABSTRACT

The hydrological study in the upstream of the Huai Khot Wang Man diversion canal in Huai Khun Kaew watershed of the Upper Tha Chin River Basin in Uthai Thani Province, Thailand was studied. The soil and water assessment tool (SWAT) and the integrated flood analysis systems (IFAS) applied to the analysis of flow at the outlet. The global weather data provided automatically by the models including land use covers and soil types. The climate forecast system reanalysis (CFSR) and the near real-time precipitation (GSMaP_NRT) used in SWAT and IFAS, respectively. The model sensitivity with Nash and Sutcliffe efficiency (NSE), correlation (R2), and root mean square error (RSME) were applied. The monthly calibrated results from SWAT fitted to the observed data in 2007-2010 with 0.77, 0.88, and 9.08 m3/s, and verified in 2011 with 0.25, 0.61, and 14.30 m3/s, respectively. The daily results from IFAS during a flood period in 2011 fitted to the observed data with 0.21, 0.39, and 34.32 m3/s. Both models showed applicable for efficient gate operation of the diversion canal from this watershed to the Nong Mamong District in Chai Nat Province.
