I will present case studies from Switzerland and Iceland and show how multiple datasets (e.g. discharge, snow cover images and glacier mass balances) can increase the consistency performance of hydrological models independently of model complexity. I will then show how the advantages of multiple dataset calibration can provide valuable results for hydropower operators. I will conclude the talk by demonstrating that the calibration method can also be used in ungauged areas and open new opportunities for water management in remote areas with limited data availability.
