Among hydrological models, the lumped rainfall runoff model PDM (Probability Distributed Model) has been widely used in many parts of the world with satisfactory performances (Srivastava et al., 2013). PDM model is developed by the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology by Moore in (Moore, 2007). The PDM model uses long records of flow and ...

PDM model is developed by the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology by Moore in (Moore, 2007). The PDM model uses long records of flow and rainfall and provides a highly effective representation of the runoff generation process (Srivastava et al., 2014). Because of its high performance it is also used in this study for discharge estimation.

Brue catchment used in this study is based on the areal rainfall cal-culated by averaging 3 rain gauges using the automated Thiessen polygon method (Han and Bray, 2006). The Probability Distributed Model (PDM) model is implemented over this catchment to esti-mate the SMD using a two-year calibration period (1st February

The PDM rainfall-runoff model. Moore, R. J. // Hydrology & Earth System Sciences;2007, Vol. 11 Issue 3, p483 . The Probability Distributed Model, or PDM, has evolved as a toolkit of model functions that together constitute a lumped rainfall-runoff model capable of representing a variety of catchment-scale hydrological behaviours.

Snow Model. VIC considers snow in several forms: ground snow pack, snow in the vegetation canopy, and snow on top of lake ice. Main features: Ground snow pack is quasi 2-layer; the topmost portion of the pack is considered separately for solving energy balance at pack surface (Andreadis et al., 2009) 4.1.0 and later can consider partial snow coverage

Hydrology, 1996]. A particular choice of functions may be best suited to any given catchment. However, for this study, the choice was determined by the need for a standardized model with a small number of parameters. Given that a number of different configurations of the PDM are available, and have

10/23/2008 · 3.2.2. Precipitation‐Runoff Model Description [31] This study implemented a model based on the probability distributed model (PDM, Figure 3), first developed by Moore. The PDM is a conceptual rainfall‐runoff model that seeks to balance model structural …

[7] This study develops a simple TOPMODEL‐based runoff parameterization (SIMTOP) that mitigates several of the problems with TOPMODEL‐based runoff schemes for use in climate models. SIMTOP uses a maximum subsurface runoff coefficient in place of a complex product of coefficients.

Structure, strengths and weaknesses of individual models are examined, and the objectives of model development and their initial applications are documented. Issues such as model uncertainty, data scarcity, integration with remote sensing data and spatial resolution are discussed.

Five hydrological models were applied based on data from the Blue Nile Basin. Optimal parameters of each model were obtained by automatic calibration. Model performance was tested under both moderate and extreme flow conditions. Extreme events for the model performance evaluation were extracted based on seven criteria. Apart from graphical techniques, there were nine statistical “ ...
