Runoff is one of the most important hydrological variables used in most of the water resources applications. Reliable prediction of runoff from land surface into streams and rivers is diffi cult and time consuming to obtain for ungauged basins. However, Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies can augment to a great extent the conventional methods used in rainfall-runoff studies. These techniques can be used to estimate the spatial variation of the hydrological…
