IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Hydrologic modeling of principal sub-basins of the magdalena-cauca large basin using wflow model
In this regard, the river behavior could be modeled hydraulically; for it, is great to know inflows received along the
rivercourse. In Magdalena-Cauca basin has been found a serious of information deficiency in tributaries flow near to its
mouth. As there are information only in 15 of the 42 principal tributaries. Hydrological modeling is an alternative to
determine the contributions, in terms of flow discharges, of each sub-basin to the river, so that they can be used as a
complement to the entries in the hydraulic analysis. In this case the strategy used is the regional modeling to achieve the
simulation of the 27 tributaries without information. Wflow hydrological model was calibrated regionally using hydrological
information of twelve sub-basins. The simulation in general represents adequately the observed hydrographs. However,
the major flaws in estimating peak flows result especially in small sub-basins. Based on results we founded that Wflow
model is an excellent tool for the simulation the Magdalena RiveríŽs flow. The simulation of tributaries flows, especially
those with small catchment areas, requires a model with higher resolution or local models that adequately represent the
hydrography of them.
