Summary
Abstract: The Hydrologic Modeling System (HMS), written by the Hydrologic Engineering
Center (HEC), simulates a watershed's rainfall-runoff process. Recent
advancements include a linear quasi-distributed runoff transform (called
ModClark) for use with gridded precipitation, continuous simulation
capabilities with either a one-layer or more complex fixed-layer soil moisture
methods, and a parameter estimation option. One can run this model using GIS,
watershed modeling, and HMS capabilities in one place.
