Catchment dynamics and its impact on runoff generation: Coupling watershed modelling and statistical analysis to detect catchment responses

February 2014

Catchment response as consequence of changes in vegetation cover and land use management could not be well explained by statistical methods alone. At the same time, long range periodic and trend components of time series are not adequately predicted by watershed modeling. Therefore, joint application of statistical time series analysis and watershed modeling better help to understand the underlying climate variability...
