Distributed Hydrologic Models for Flow Forecasts - Part 2

Distributed Hydrologic Models for Flow Forecasts - Part 2
  1. Identify the various schemes used in distributed hydrologic models to determine the following:
    1. Rainfall/runoff relationship
    2. Snowmelt
    3. Overland flow (runoff) routing
    4. Channel response
  2. Describe how, as of 2010, distributed hydrologic models used by the National Weather Service and others perform each of these tasks
  3. Explain when, where, and why to choose a distributed model over a lumped or other model
  4. Recognize that distributed hydrologic models are evolving and there are issues with calibration and other aspects
