Abstract: Continuous modelling correctly reproduces start-up values of storages and loss rates and statistics for properties of hydrographs. Kinematics of storms should be considered. The effects of storm motion are shown to be important. Appropriate resolution for field data for validation of continuous runoff models and dynamic storm models, and for design purposes are suggested. Appropriate time steps and discretization for the modelling effort are recommended.
