|Toelichting (Engels)||Hydrological models at river basin scale are needed to predict floods, droughts, available water, and effects of future changes, caused by climate and land cover change. However, in many river basins, there is not enough data available to construct these models. Fortunately, it becomes more and more attractive to use earth observations from satellites as complementary data to construct hydrological models in these river basins. This thesis describes the development and application of methods that allow one to combine the scarce ground data, available in such poorly gauged catchments, with expert knowledge and modern satellite data, with the purpose to conceptualise, calibrate and validate hydrological models|
