    Hydrological models have been used in different River basins across the world for better understanding of the hydrological processes and the water resources availability. It is important to use hydrological model today to assess and predict the water availability of river basins due to climate change to develop a strategies in order to cope up with the changing environment. It is very crucial to properly calibrate and validate models to give confidence to model users in prediction of stream flow. In this study HEC-HMS 3.5 hydrologic model (Developed by US Hydrologic Engineering Center-SMA (with Soil moisture Accounting Algorithm) has been used to calibrate (from 1988-2000) and validate (from 2001-2005) the upper Blue Nile River Basin (Gilgel Abay, Gumera, Ribb and Megech catchment). The model performance tested for each catchment in simulation the runoff flow during calibration and va.. Read More»
