Inverse hydrologic modelling

High resolution forecast models are more and more used for operational runoff forecasts. However, their application to small and medium sized catchments/basins is still difficult because of the required very high forecast quality for precipitation (spatial and temporal distribution, intensity, amount), which often can not be delivered by meteorologic forecasts, thus requiring additional evaluation. This evaluation should be done by equally highly resolved water balance models. WaSiM is such a model to evaluate meteorologic forecast data as well as Radar precipitation data.
