Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering Hydrology


This paper reports on a series of tests aimed at developing improved procedures for catchment routing. The objective is to compare kinematic and diffusion models within several scenarios of physical reality and numerical fact. The effects of bed slope and Courant number are specifically isolated herein.
