The uncertainties arising from the problem of identifying a representative model structure and model parameters in a conceptual rainfall-runoff model were investigated. A conceptual model, the HBV model, was applied to the mountainous Brugga basin (39.9 km") in the Black Forest, southwestern Germany. In a first step, a Monte Carlo procedure with randomly(More)
[1] A key component to understanding and predicting water fluxes and water quality in river basins is the spatial distribution of water-saturated areas. There is limited knowledge on spatial patterns of saturated areas, their relation to landscape characteristics and processes, and the ability of hydrological models to represent the observed spatial(More)
Hydrological and geomorphological processes are key to mangrove forest growth and development. However, few mangrove hydrology studies exist in Central America. A 0.2 km2 mangrove forest on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua was investigated to determine the water balance dynamics during the dry season. The used multi-methods approach combined hydrology,(More)
For optimal protection and integrated management of water resources, it is essential to quantify the impact of land-use change on hydrological regimes at various scales. Using the process-based catchment model TAC D (tracer aided catchment model, distributed) two land-use scenarios were analysed for the rural and mountainous Dreisam basin (258 km 2): (i) an(More)
The knowledge of water flow pathways and residence times in a catchment are essential for predicting the hydrological response to a rain storm event. Different experimental techniques are available to study these processes, which are briefly reviewed in this paper. To illustrate this, recent findings from the Weatherley catchment a 1.5 km 2 semi-arid(More)
In our publication Westhoff et al. (2007), a typographic error was propagated, which was first seen in Boyd and Kasper (2003), and showed up in our Eq. (14). The correct equation is: atmospheric = 0.96 ε atm θ VTS σ sb (T air + 273.2) 4. (1) With this notation, the total incoming longwave radiation is computed to be the weighted average of atmospheric(More)
