Hydrological Simulation Program - FORTRAN (HSPF)
Entry ID: EPA_HSPF
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Hydrological Simulation Program - FORTRAN (HSPF) is a comprehensive package
for simulation of watershed hydrology and water quality for both conventional
and toxic organic pollutants. HSPF incorporates watershed-scale ARM and NPS
models into a basin-scale analysis framework that includes fate and transport
in one dimensional stream channels. It is the only comprehensive model of
watershed hydrology and water quality that allows the integrated simulation of
land and soil contaminant runoff processes with In-stream hydraulic and
sediment-chemical interactions. The result of this simulation is a time history
of the runoff flow rate, sediment load, and nutrient and pesticide
concentrations, along with a time history of water quantity and quality at any
point in a watershed. HSPF simulates three sediment types (sand, silt, and
clay) in addition to a single organic chemical and transformation products of
that chemical.
