Distributed Routing Rainfall-Runoff Model
Entry ID: USGS_DR3M

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Distributed Routing Rainfall-Runoff Model (DR3M) is a watershed model for
routing storm runoff through a Branched system of pipes and (or) natural
channels using rainfall as input. DR3M provides detailed simulation of
storm-runoff periods selected by the user. There is daily soil-moisture
accounting between storms. A drainage basin is represented as a set of
overland-flow, channel, and reservoir segments, which jointly describe the
drainage features of the basin. This model is usually used to simulate small
urban basins. Interflow and base flow are not simulated. Snow accumulation
and snow melt are not simulated.
