Model Construction:Total time

From Gsshawiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The total time parameter sets the total simulation time for a model in minutes. If the falling limb of the discharge hydrograph is of particular interest, the total simulation time must be set to a value greater than total rainfall duration plus the expected recession time.

The total time is used only for single-event simulations. During long-term simulations, the total time is not used because the simulation time is determined from the rainfall and hydrometeorological input files.
