During my internship at the Federal Institute for Water Snow and Landscape (WSL) I had the opportunity to participate on the development of a new model-based method to estimate the waterbalance of Switzerland. This approach is based on the hydrological model PREVAH, which models the entire hydrological Switzerland with a resolution of 200x200m. The results of this new approach have been verified with 71 catchemnet areas and are consistent with older studies. It is now possible to do a monthly waterbalance on a regional level, this improves the comparability between the single years.
