Abstract : During the last several years the Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) has been involved in developing and adapting software for real-time data analysis, short-term runoff forecasting and reservior systems simulation. These software components are part of a comprehensive software system that also includes a specially-designed data storage system, an interactive control interface and a graphical display capability the facilitates interpretation and analysis of observed data and simulation results. The software system, in whole or in part, is intended for use throughout the Corps of Engineers on computers that are dedicated to water control activities. The software is presently being implemented on Harris 100/500 minicomputers. This paper focuses on the conceptual basis for, and capabilities of, the software system. Illustration of software capabilities is based on application to the 16,900 sq. km. Scioto Basin in Ohio, USA.
