2010 – 2014
Urooj was funded off an ARC Linkage project with the aim of developing a computationally efficient semi-distributed model which could run climate change simulations at a catchment level in sensible times. Urooj was supervised Narendra Tuteja (at the BoM), Hoori Ajami and Ashish, and ended up with what could be a very different way of doing hydrology using a fraction of run-time any distributed or semi-distributed models use.
