DWSM

Dynamic Watershed Simulation Model

The Dynamic Watershed Simulation Model (DWSM) is a watershed model capturing rainfall-runoff dynamics for extreme rain events in agricultural watersheds. It is capable of simulating hydrologic, sedminent transport and erosion processes.

Model Information
For more information about this model, go to Borah, Deva & Xia, R. & Bera, M.. (2002). DWSM-A Dynamic Watershed Simulation Model.
Spatial Resolution
The spatial resolution is defined the sub-basin scale. Each basin is defined as two planes and a channel. Each plane is assumed homogeneous.
Temporal Resolution
The model simulation period is defined as a single event and based and the time step specified with a scale on the order of minutes to hours.
Outputs
