Real-time urban runoff simulation using radar rainfall and physics-based distributed modeling for site-specific forecast

B. E. Vieux, Bedient, .B. & E. Mazroi
Quantitative precipitation estimates (QPE) derived from radar are useful in runoff simulation in urban drainage. Simulation experiments using radar data sampled at various resolutions identify the limits to predictability for various basin sizes. Spatial resolution of radar rainfall used as input to a distributed model affects prediction error and scales with drainage area. Radar data used in this analysis are derived from both S-band (NEXRAD) and X-band radars. Using radar QPE derived from the existing...
