A physically based, variable contributing area model of basin hydrology
A hydrological forecasting model is presented that attempts to combine the important distributed effects of channel network topology and dynamic contributing areas with the advantages of simple
The future of distributed models: model calibration and uncertainty prediction.
TLDR
The GLUE procedure works with multiple sets of parameter values and allows that, within the limitations of a given model structure and errors in boundary conditions and field observations, different sets of values may be equally likely as simulators of a catchment.
Rainfall-Runoff Modelling: The Primer
  • K. Beven
  • Environmental Science
  • 30 January 2012
authoritative text, first published in 2001. The book provides both a primer for the novice and detailed descriptions of techniques for more advanced practitioners, covering rainfall-runoff models
Macropores and water flow in soils
This paper reviews the importance of large continuous openings (macropores) on water flow in soils. The presence of macropores may lead to spatial concentrations of water flow through unsaturated
THE PREDICTION OF HILLSLOPE FLOW PATHS FOR DISTRIBUTED HYDROLOGICAL MODELLING USING DIGITAL TERRAIN MODELS
The accuracy of the predictions of distributed hydrological models must depend in part on the proper specification of flow pathways. This paper examines some of the problems of deriving flow pathways
TOPMODEL : a critique.
  • K. Beven
  • Environmental Science
  • 1 July 1997
TLDR
A critical review of some of the issues involved in application of the TOPMODEL concepts, including the basic assumptions involved; the derivation of topographic index distributions from digital terrain data; additional model components; meaning and calibration of the model parameters; and Issues involved in model validation and predictive uncertainty are reviewed.
