AbstractA new hydrological forecasting system is now under development for Hydro-Quebec. The objective is to replace the actual lumped parameter model by a model designed to simulate spatially distributed hydrological processes and use remotely sensed data to complement the ground data from the sparse network of stations on their watersheds. The HYDROTEL model [1,2] will be used for this purpose. SPOT or TM images, together with a digital elevation model, will be used to estimate watershed characteristics, while GOES and NOAA data will help to estimate hydrometeorological variables. A methodology to interpret SAR data from ERS-1 and eventually RADARSAT for the estimation of snow characteristics is also being developed.
