Deterministic Model

Block model:

Input and output values are determined only by measuring data and expressed in mathematical algorithms.

Distributed Model:

Estimates the spatial distribution of moisture, energy fluxes, and runoff generation by subdividing the model domain into small computational grid elements using the spatial resolution of an underlying digital elevation model.

Detailed model:

Based on the physical interrelations between initial conditions and output values (i.e. rainfall runoff models). This model is subdivided in:

  • Short term model: The simulation of rainfall runoff processes is limited to flood simulation.
  • Long term simulation: Rainfall runoff model are conceptualised for the calculation over longer period (water balance models, low water models)
