Hydroclimatic analysis of a carbonate island pond through the development of a hydrologic landscape unit model

Description :
The aim of this study is to develop a methodology that allows for an estimate of the hydroclimatic influence on an inland pond system on San Salvador, Bahamas. The methodology utilizes the Hydrologic Landscape Unit (HLU) model, a new conceptual model. For this case study, a linear regression model was developed to empirically assess the HLU. This analysis separates tidal and climatic impacts on water levels of the pond and indicates that astronomical tides dominate, explaining 65% of the variance in pond water-level observations.
