An analytical model for hydrologic analysis in urban watersheds

P. Rivera, J. Giron\303\241s, J. P. Montt & B. Fern\303\241ndez
ABSTRACT Guo and Adams (1998a, b) presented a methodology to estimate the cumulative distribution function for maximum discharges and total volumes of urban floods based on the rainfall-runoff transformation and the rainfall volume and duration, modeled as independent variables exponentially distributed. Rainfall records in many locations did not show this independency; therefore this model may fail at estimating these distributions. In this paper a new analytical model based on a different characterization of the storms...
