SENSITIVITY OF LINEAR AND NONLINEAR SURFACE RUNOFF MODELS TO INPUT ERRORS

The relationship is examined between errors in runoff peak predictions by linear and nonlinear surface runoff models and errors in input intensity. It is shown that if input intensity errors are sufficiently large, a linear model optimally identified according to a least-squares criterion may perform better than a nonlinear model even though the system is truly nonlinear.
