Hydrological modals are useful for understanding the nature of hydrological phenomena in river catchments and evaluating hydrological variables in a quantitative way. Because it is virtually impossible to conduct a well-controlled hydrological experiment of basin scale processes, to observe the processes, draw the physical laws and build the models are the important methodologies for understanding and prediction of the hydrological phenomena. The goal of this research project is to develop a common platform for water-related software which provides a standardized modeling framework The results of the project are summarized as follows:
1. The specifications on the common modeling platform were investigated from the perspective of model coupling and integration.
2. The common modeling platform was developed according to the specifications above.
3. A parallel numerical computation technique was introduced into the platform for very high speed simulations of large scale hydrological systems.
4. The distributed rainfall-runoff models were developed by using the platform and applied to several study basins for investigation of the model predictability, assessment of the flood control ability of dam reservoirs and estimation of parameter values of the distributed hydrological models.
5. A methodology was developed by which the two models of totally different hydrological processes were coupled on the common modeling platform.
6. A zoomable irregular mesh editor was developed which is capable of constructing irregular mesh networks for flooding simulation.
