Abstract : The Hydrologic Modeling System is the Hydrologic Engineering Center's 'next generation' software for precipitation-runoff simulation. The software will provide a variety of options for specifying observed or hypothetical meteorological inputs and for simulating losses, runoff transformation, and routing. Capabilities include a quasi-distributed runoff transformation that can be applied with gridded (e.g., radar) rainfall data. Soil-moisture accounting options that support period-of- record simulation will be provided, as will capability to simulate snow accumulation and melt. The software employs a graphical user interface and is designed for use in both X-Window and Microsoft Windows environments.
