To simulate the components of water balance or run-off from small basins to nationwide catchments, we basically use the deterministic area detailed hydrological model
WASIM-ETH. It can be applied to consider soil water balance and the water balance components - precipitation, evaporation and runoff -
as well as runoff components for nearly every spatial resolution and independently of the time scale of input data.
The close contact with the model developer and the ongoing further development are evident for expert working even in complex terrain conditions.
There can be a variety of questions addressed by the model, such as:
Dimensioning of design floods is mostly carried out with simpler software tools like the toolbox for flood analysis and calculation (IWG).
