  1. 1. Hydrological modelling of a recycling facility and landfill

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Mazen Tawfik; [2022]
    Keywords : Parsimonious approach; Lumped modelling; Surface water; Landfill; Leachate water; Storage reservoirs.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A parsimonious lumped model for simulating a catchment composed of a landfill and recycling facility were developed. The modelling results showed an acceptable conformity with the observed values with NSE of 0.54 and R2 of 0.56 in hourly simulations, though the results were characterized by a general underestimation.
