Computers have played a major role in the evolution of hydrologic rainfall-runoff models. Besides providing the computational power required for the simulation of the complex interacting subprocesses of a catchment, computer graphics are now helping to detect and resolve identifiability problems associated with the calibration of such models. This paper presents the progress made to date in this area.
