    Abstract

    In this study, the dynamic downscaling approach with a regional-scale atmospheric model (MM5) has been used for reconstructing hourly atmospheric and precipitation data at 3-km spatial resolution, and then physically-based hydrologic and environmental model (WEHY) has been used for water resources and environmental assessment. This approach performed for the Upper Putah Creek watershed and the model results have been calibrated and validated by the field monitored data. The results of studies indicated that the methodologies in this study showed promise in water resources and hydrometeorology in order to support the scientific bases to policymakers for the watershed assessments and plans.
