Seasonal Streamflow Forecast Intercomparison Project
A small set of watersheds is being implemented for the intercomparison of various elements involved in seasonal streamflow forecasting approaches. The watersheds selected for the effort are relatively unimpaired basins that are important for water resources management. Each watershed (and including associated data and methods) is contributed by a partner in the project.

Seasonal streamflow forecasts are produced operationally in many countries around the world to support decisionmaking in water management. Although there are many commonalities in the forecasting approaches, the approaches also use a range of methods, models and data. HEPEX is undertaking a project to develop a shared understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of modern strategies though intercomparing elements of the different approaches in a small number of forecasting basins around the world.
(1) Probabilistic forecasts streamflow or runoff volumes at lead times up to one year.
(1) To learn from each other, share and improve techniques and expertise related to seasonal streamflow prediction.
