In contrast to “Event Based” modeling which we have been doing all semester to this point, continuous streamflow modeling attempts to model the streamflow behavior of the watershed over periods of both wet and dry weather. Storms produce flood flows with “recovery periods” in between in which the watershed returns to baseflow conditions. Continuous Streamflow Modeling: Concept

Once a model is calibrated for a particular watershed, it becomes possible to predict future streamflow behavior under changed land use and/or climate. 2. When predicting pollutant or nutrient loads that are mobilized or transported by streamflow, it is important to first be accurately representing the flow before the transport can be accurately represented.
