Abstract: We introduce an approach for river basin wide determination of environmental flows using the habitat simulation model, MesoHABSIM. The approach follows tenets of the natural flow paradigm and recommends dynamic flow regime adjustments that support the needs of aquatic fauna over a range of bioperiods. We present the demonstration results of the technique on a test site in Ramganga River Basin in India and a concept developed for environmental flows determination across the river basin during an ongoing study. It may serve as a template for country-wide application.
