AbstractA U.S. EPA (EPA) model was developed for the Cathedral Run stormwater wetland (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). This research presents a formal sensitivity analysis of hydraulic and hydrologic model parameters contributing uncertainty with the multiobjective generalized sensitivity analysis (MOGSA) algorithm. The parameters identified as significant include: percent routed (PR), subcatchment soils, subcatchment width, wetland soils, and the flood weir coefficient. These results suggest that… CONTINUE READING
