Research activities aiming at integrating Earth Observation data in large scale distributed hydrological modelling will be presented. The focus will be on the Senegal River basin in West Africa where satellite data from various sensors and from different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum will be used in combination with a distributed model specifically adapted to utilize Earth Observation data. The work represents the initial results obtained by the ongoing INTEO project. The outcome and experiences gained so far are primarily related to low resolution optical data from the NOAA-AVHRR sensor, and results related to land cover classification, vegetation and soil moisture will be presented.
