LISFLOOD - Distributed Water Balance and Flood Simulation Model - Revised User Manual 2013


The LISFLOOD model is a hydrological rainfall-runoff model that is capable of simulating the hydrological processes that occur in a catchment. LISFLOOD has been developed by the floods group of the Natural Hazards Project of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission. The specific development objective was to produce a tool that can be used in large and trans-national catchments for a variety of applications, including: - Flood forecasting - Assessing the effects of river regulation measures - Assessing the effects of land-use change - Assessing the effects of climate change
