Modelling of snowmelt and rainfall runoff - Dynamics of road runoff and suspended solid transport

C. Westerlund, M. Viklander & C. Hernebring
In this paper, a simple model concept is presented to describe the dynamics of road runoff and suspended-solid transport from a small urban catchment in northern Sweden. The study period stretches from March 28 to May 28, 2000, including both snowmelt and rainfall. A modified degree-day method is used to describe the snowmelt and the transport of suspended solids is described by a linear build-up function and a wash-off model. The model was verified through...
