Lumped and Semi-distributed Modeling using NEXRAD Stage-III Data: Results from Continuous Multi-year Simulations
MetadataShow full item record
Nexrad precipitation products appear to be a viable data source for river forecasting model in the National Weather Service (NWS). Good simulation results at an hourly lumped scale were achieved for 3 basins near Tulsa, Oklahoma. In some cases, semidistributed representation of these basins led to slightly better results. However, problems with parameterizing and calibrating a semi-distributed model with limited information arose. Possible explanations for the similarity between the lumped and semi-d istributed simulations are discussed.
