The Next Task: Hydrologic Simulation of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

Alemayehu W. Gebriel[1], PhD, PE



The Agreement on the Declaration of Principles (DoP) on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) was signed by the respective heads of state for Ethiopia, Egypt, and the Sudan on March 23, 2015 in Khartoum, Sudan.  Performing hydrologic simulations of the GERD using appropriate modeling system is one of the main tasks that need to be completed in order to implement the principles stated in the DoP for utilization of the shared water resource of the Nile.  A selection of reliable hydrologic modeling system is critical to answer the many issues that have not been addressed so far. The main purpose of this article is to review some of the modeling work done on GERD and available hydrologic modeling systems and their capabilities.
