Luca - Let Us Calibrate
Entry ID: USGS_LUCA

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Luca (Let us calibrate) is a multiple-objective, stepwise, automated procedure for hydrologic model calibration and the associated graphical user interface (GUI). Luca is a wizard-style user-friendly GUI that provides an easy systematic way of building and executing a calibration procedure. The calibration procedure uses the Shuffled Complex Evolution global search algorithm to calibrate any model compiled with the U.S. Geological Survey’s Modular Modeling System. This process assures that intermediate and final states of the model are simulated consistently with measured values.
