Abstract: A single-event mathematical watershed model is presented in this paper to compute runoff resulting from any natural or synthetic rainfall. The formulations of the various hydrologic processes are very similar to those of the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) TR-20 model. However the computer program is user-friendly, and the effort needed for data file preparation is minimal.
