Calculating the Runoff
The Idealized Catchment

The catchment area is
divided into various components as indicated in Figure 7.16. In
MIDUSS both the pervious and impervious areas are assumed to be
directly connected and are further assumed to be described by lumped
parameters - i.e. each fraction is assumed to be homogeneous.
