Explicit methods calculate the state of a system at a later time from the state of the system at the current time, whileimplicit methods find a solution by solving an equation involving both the current state of the system and the late[……]
“The Log wind profile is a semi-empirical relationship commonly used to describe the vertical distribution of horizontal mean wind speeds within the lowest portion of the planetary boundary layer. The relationship is well described in the literature”. “The logarithmic profile of wind speeds is g[……]
Before understanding the difference between hydrologic and hydraulic modelling, it is essential to have an understanding of the differences between hydrology and hydraulics.
“Hydrology is the scientific study of the movement, distribution, and quality of water on Earth and other planets, including[……]
Evaporation is the transferral of liquid water into a gaseous state and its diffusion into the atmosphere. In order for this to occur there must be liquid water present and available energy from the sun or atmosphere. Potential evaporation (PE) is that which occurs over the land’s surface, or woul[……]
According to the definition of Wikipedia, goundwater (or ground water) is the water present beneath Earth‘s surface in soil pore spaces and in the fractures of rock formations.Indeed, all water beneath the surface is ground water, but it is convenient to distinguish between the saturated and unsatur[……]
1. The future in rainfall-runoff modeling is therefore one of uncertainty, but this then implies a future question as to how best to constrain that uncertainty.
2. There have certainly been important and interesting advances in rainfall-runoff modeling techniques, but we are still very de[……]
