[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: CASC2D is a fully-unsteady, physically-based, distributed-parameter, raster
(square-grid), two-dimensional, infiltration-excess (Hortonian) hydrologic
model for simulating the hydrologic response of a watersheds subject to an
input rainfall field. Major components of the model include: continuous
soil-moisture accounting, rainfall interception, infiltration, surface and

Description: The Watershed Modeling System (WMS) can now be obtained for public domain use -
free of charge. This freeware version of the software will allow anyone to set
up and execute a hydrologic model using the schematic set up option in the
Hydrologic Modeling Module of WMS.

Use Constraints Users with no background in or understanding of distributed hydrology are
strongly advised against using this code in any mode, particularly in
operational mode. Besides knowledge of basic hydrology, experience with typical
numerical techniques used in physically-based hydrodynamic models is
recommended as it will help the user grasp capabilities and ... View entire text
