Do hydrological models cope with complex Australian catchments?

Climate change and rapid land use change has forced a rethink on hydrological models. Non-stationarity (where trends in time-series are non-linear or non-uniform) is now the norm, a more...

Scaling hydrological models from continent to catchment

A major question in hydrology revolves around scaling, that is, how we translate model results from for example a continental scale to a finer catchment or local scale. This is part more...
