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 simpleExpand

The future of distributed models: model calibration and uncertainty prediction.
This paper describes a methodology for calibration and uncertainty estimation of distributed models based on generalized likelihood measures. The GLUE procedure works with multiple sets of parameterExpand

A manifesto for the equifinality thesis
This essay discusses some of the issues involved in the identification and predictions of hydrological models given some calibration data. The reasons for the incompleteness of traditionalExpand

Equifinality, data assimilation, and uncertainty estimation in mechanistic modelling of complex environmental systems using the GLUE methodology
It may be endemic to mechanistic modelling of complex environmental systems that there are many different model structures and many different parameter sets within a chosen model structure that mayExpand

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 unsaturatedExpand

Changing ideas in hydrology — The case of physically-based models
This paper argues that there are fundamental problems in the application of physically-based models for practical prediction in hydrology. These problems result from limitations of the modelExpand

Bayesian Estimation of Uncertainty in Runoff Prediction and the Value of Data: An Application of the GLUE Approach
This paper addresses the problem of evaluating the predictive uncertainty of TOPMODEL using the Bayesian Generalised Likelihood Uncertainty Estimation (GLUE) methodology in an application to theExpand

Prophecy, reality and uncertainty in distributed hydrological modelling
Difficulties in defining truly mechanistic model structures and difficulties of model calibration and validation suggest that the application of distributed hydrological models is more an exercise inExpand
