Application of the precipitation-runoff modeling system to small basins in the Parachute Creek basin, Colorado; 1986; WRI; 86-4115; Norris, J. M.

Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey 's Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System was calibrated and verified for two small basins in western Colorado. Average monthly mean, average monthly maximum, average annual total, and average daily mean observed and model predicted streamflow differences were small, on the average < 10 %, indicating the Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System can, when adequately calibrated, satisfactorily estimate these streamflow factors. Average monthly minimum streamflow generally was over-predicted, but actual differences between observed and model predicted average monthly minimum streamflow are small. To determine relative errors of streamflow prediction in ungaged basins, three different model parameter sets were used [...]
