Calculating the Runoff

The Idealized Catchment


From the MIDUSS Version 2 Reference Manual - Chapter 7
(c) Copyright Alan A. Smith Inc.

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.
