Abstract: An expert system has been designed and is being built for predicting snowmelt runoff. The expert system mimics an experienced hydrologist by assisting the user in preparing data input, selecting parameters, and evaluating results. The expert system is built around an existing FORTRAN simulation model and is run on a LISP machine that can interpret the FORTRAN model without having to reprogram it.
