WaterWare models: RRM Rainfall-Runoff Model
The RRM rainfall-runoff model is a dynamic, vertically distributed, horizontally lumped (sub)basin scale water budget model that operates at a daily or hourly time step. It is designed for ungauged sub-catchments, estimating their outflow as a function of basin characteristics including, primarily, elevation distribution, land cover and land use, and rainfall and temperature as dynamic inputs. Its primary purpose is to provide input (time series of daily flow) to the WRM water resources model for sub-catchment start or input nodes. The model, however, has also been used for larger catchments of several thousand square kilometers.
Wherever observation data are available, an automatic calibration scheme based on patterns rather than the individual observation data and implemented as a nested Monte Carlo scheme with rule-based constraints is available. RRM scenarios can be defined interactively, or exported from the calibration tool.
Web ImplementationThe RRM model is implemented with a primary start page accessible from a login and user authentication page, with a short description of the model. The pages leads to a scenario listing and selector. The scenario selector shows the list of available scenarios described in terms of a scenario name, an author/owner, a short description, start date, last modification, and the location (case study) the scenario belongs to. The scenario list can be filtered and sorted (ascending or descending) by any one of the column properties.
Selecting a scenario from the list leads to the main display page for scenarios:
The page itself provides a summary of the scenario, including: name and description, owner/author, location and basin, start and end dates, creation and last modification, and an overview of the basic input data sets used:
The Scenario Editor offers three functional pages main and links/buttons:
This page also contain a button to export the outflow time series to the time-series data base, so that it can be re-used as input for other models such as WRM.
The options for four additional pages with detailed, specific information, include:
