  • Special Collections by ASABE Natural Resources & Environmental Systems Community

    The 2015 Hydrologic and Water Quality Model Use, Calibration & Validation Guidelines Special Collection aims to synthesize current model calibration and validation procedures for hydrologic/water quality models. It is a collection of nine peer-reviewed articles and an introductory article published in Transactions of the ASABE 58(6).

    The Collection is targeted toward hydrologic and water-quality model practitioners and includes detailed descriptions of nine topics: terminology, hydrological processes and model representation, spatial and temporal scales, model parameterization, calibration/validation strategies, sensitivity, uncertainty, model performance measures and criteria, and documentation and reporting. A total of 45 ASABE members and colleagues contributed to the papers in this Collection.

    The 2015 Collection builds on a 2012 ASABE Collection in Transaction of the ASABE 55(4) of 23 peer-reviewed articles covering model use, calibration and validation recommendations by the developers of 25 leading hydrologic and water quality models.
