Characterisation of river flow regimes for environmental and enginering hydrology: unit hydrographs for rainfall-streamflow modelling

Littlewood I.G., 2008, Characterisation of river flow regimes for environmental and enginering hydrology: unit hydrographs for rainfall-streamflow modelling, Folia Geographica ser. Geographica-Physica, vol. XXXIX (39): 5-36.

Keywords: rainfall-streamflow modelling; unit hydrographs; regionalisation; ungauged basins; modelling time-step; base flow index (BFI); slow flow index (SFI); databases

Summary: Two rainfall-streamflow, unit hydrograph (UH) based, modelling methods are compared, one primarily for flood event engineering hydrology and the other mainly for time series environmental hydrology. The latter method is employed to illustrate the often-overlooked sensitivity of calibrated model parameters to data time-step. It is argued that the parameter values of other rainfall-streamflow models are similarly sensitive to data time-step, causing some of the uncertainty in model parameter regionalisation schemes. An empirical method of estimating data time-step-independent parameters is demonstrated for the time series UH-based model. Sensitivities to data time-step are compared for a well-known base flow index (BFI) and an analogous slow flow index (SFI) generated by the time series UH-based method. The impact of researchers' limited ready-access to some types of hydrometeorological data is discussed. Suggestions are made for future work.
