Abstract

The monitoring of hydrological and meteorological variables from watersheds is one of the principal tasks of hydrology and water resources management. Hydrological and meteorological data are the basis of hydrological science (Rodda 1995; Vorosmarty et al. 2001). High-quality hydrological data are also needed to support decisions on rainwater management strategies and water allocation practices (Gomani et al. 2010).
