    Abstract

    Efficient water use is the key for sustainable management of water resources. The major reason of non-efficient management of water resources,especially in developing countries, is nonavailability of reliable hydrological information about the actual water used by different agricultural crops with in a large irrigation system or at the basin scale. Therefore, an estimation of spatially distributed crop water consumption is important and challenging to determine water
    balance at different scales to promote efficient management of water resources. Remote sensing data can resolve difficulties in determining water balance due to scientific developments in the calculation of spatially distributed actual
    evapotranspiration. In this study, seven TERRA/MODIS satellite images were used on different dates (April 06, May 31, June 12, July 12, August 23, September 22, and October 24) during the summer cropping season of 2002 over Liuyuankou Irrigation System (LIS) located along the Yellow River basin of China.

    OtherThe congress theme of "Advances and Applications for Management and Decision Making" was selected to reinforce the importance of modelling and simulation developments for management and decision making, particularly those which have not been present at recent MODSIM conferences. There was also a focus on the application of modelling and simulation techniques to a broad range of real-world problems.
