A water loss module for the river modelling system MIKE 11 has been developed to account for water losses due to retention and infiltration on flood plains. MIKE 11 including the water loss module has been calibrated and tested on data from the Yamuna river, India. The inclusion of the water loss module has improved the water level forecasts at Delhi to a large extent.
