  2. Talk Overview • Why care about ecosystem services • InVEST • Hydropower production Model • Hands-on Exercise

  3. Why Care About Ecosystem Services?

  4. InVEST: Science in a Simple Tool Integrated Valuation of Ecosystem Services and Tradeoffs

  5. InVEST Attributes • Evaluate change • Biophysical & monetary • Open source • Multiple services • Spatially explicit • Production functions Models Simple Complex Data Tier 0 Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3

  6. Water Yield for Hydropower Irrigation Drinking Water Water Yield Pollution Dilution

  7. Questions you get answers • How much water is available? • Where does the water used for hydropower production come from? • How much energy does it produce? • How much is it worth?

  8. Informs Policy Makers to • Focus protection on areas that contribute the most. • Design management practices that lead to minimal loss. • Identify places where other economic activities will conflict with hydropower production. • How much hydropower will we gain or lose under future management or conservation plans? • Create payment programs to get most return on investment (with Tier 2 model).

  9. Model Architecture Land Use Climate Soils Water Yield Model E(t) P(t) Evapo-transpiration Water Yield Price Turbine Eff. Dam Height Consumptive Use Q(t) Net Volume Hydropower and Valuation Model Water Scarcity Model Energy Energy Value

  10. Water Yield Transpiration Precipitation Evaporation Rain Leaf type Snow Plant type Seasonality Fog Yjx Root depth Inflow annual average water yield per pixel Water Availability

  12. Model Strengths • Uses readily available and minimum data. • Simple, applicable and generalizable • Spatially explicit • Link the biophysical functions to economic values • Values each parcel on the landscape

  13. Model Limitations • Neglects extremes and seasonal variation of water yield • Neglects surface-deep groundwater interactions • Assumes hydropower production and pricing remain constant

  14. Calibration and Validation • Sensitivity Analysis to identify most sensitive parameters • Model Calibration using long term average actual data • Find land use parameters within acceptable ranges • Model parameter (Zhang constant) • Validate Model by conducting comparisons with observed data or other model output

  19. Hands-on Session • Run the water yield model

  20. Hands-on Session • Run the water scarcity model

  21. Hands-on Session • Run the hydropower and valuation model

  22. Hands-on Session Think how you would use theWater Yield Model in your work?

  23. Coming up in InVEST • Regionalizing the Zhang constant • Automating calibration technique • Monthly model • Groundwater recharge index • Tier 2 water yield model I(t) P(t) Irr(t) Sm(t) Qf(t) E(t) If(t) S(t) Bf(t)

  24. UPYRB Example

  25. How Does it Work? • Water Yield is the water depth (volume) that is NOT Evapotranspired: WY = P – AET • It is the sum of Surface flow, subsurface flow and groundwater flow: WY = SR + SubSR + GW • Model: WY = P * (1 – AET / P ) E(t) P(t) Q(t)

  26. Energy Calculation outflow rate head pd = d.qd.g.hd gravity constant water density outflow =0.00272

  27. Valuation • Total Value of the Hydropower: • The Sub-basin’s Hydropower production Value: =
