Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System
Entry ID: USGS_PRMS

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: PRMS is a modular-design, deterministic, distributed-parameter modeling system
developed to evaluate the impacts of various combinations of precipitation,
climate, and land use on streamflow, sediment yields, and general basin
hydrology. Basin response to normal and extreme rainfall and snow melt can be
simulated to evaluate changes in water-balance relationships, flow regimes,
flood peaks and ... View entire text
