A simple TOPMODEL-based runoff parameterization ( SIMTOP ) for use in global climate models

  title={A simple TOPMODEL-based runoff parameterization ( SIMTOP ) for use in global climate models},
  author={Guo-Yue Niu and Zong-Liang Yang and Lindsey E. Gulden},
[1] This paper develops a simple TOPMODEL-based runoff parameterization (hereinafter SIMTOP) for use in global climate models (GCMs) that improves the runoff production and the partitioning of runoff between surface and subsurface components. SIMTOP simplifies the TOPMODEL runoff formulations in two ways: (1) SIMTOP represents the discrete distribution of the topographic index as an exponential function, not as a three-parameter gamma distribution; this change improves the parameterization of… CONTINUE READING
