A COMPARISON OF HYDROLOGIC AND HYDRAULIC CATCHMENT ROUTING PROCEDURES

A comparative study of two non-linear catchment routing techniques - one founded on hydrologic concepts of distributed storage, the other founded on hydraulic concepts of kinematic wave theory - was carried out using previously published data for storms recorded on the catchment of South Creek in New South Wales, Australia. The hydrologic technique used in the study is essentially that of Laurenson (1964), but some important modifications have been incorporated. The hydraulic technique is as formulated in a series of papers by Wooding (1965a, b, 1966). /AUTHOR/
