Synthetic Calibration of a Rainfall-Runoff Model
A method for synthetically calibrating storm-mode parameters for the U.S. Geological Survey's Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System is described. Synthetic calibration is accomplished...

Bootstrapping Nonlinear Storm Event Models
A bootstrap method for estimating the parameters of nonlinear storm event models is presented. The method pools (combines) the parameter estimates obtained from fitting computed and observed...
