Hydrologic regionalization consists of regrouping stations and catchments in pools based on a similarity measure. Regionalization is commonly used to extract a robust signal that can be used to describe the hydrology of the region or extrapolated to a location without measured information. Obviously, the similarity measure used affects the type of hydrological behavior one would expect from stations within a region. Most regionalization methods assume a stable and/or linear relationship between parameters of interests while it is well known that the physical processes driving the behavior of hydrometeorological variables are inherently non-linear and non-stationary. In this paper, we propose a similarity measure that is based on the location of changepoints in hydrological time series. The proposed method has the unique advantage over other hydrological region delineation methods to detect regions where hydrological member stations are non-linearly correlated, and where the strength of the relation varies with time. It therefore has the potential to uncover similarities that would not have been detected by existing regionalization techniques. The proposed method is applied to the Tensift watershed located in Morocco, North Africa. The coherence of the detected regions is checked using wavelet coherence.
