DHSVM is a distributed hydrology model that was developed at the University of Washington more than ten years ago. It has been applied both operationally, for streamflow prediction, and in a research capacity, to examine the effects of forest management on peak streamflow, among other things.

Input Parameters Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the basin Soil textural and hydraulic information Vegetation information Meteorological conditions at a subdaily timestep, in particular precipitation, air temperature, humidity, wind speed, incoming shortwave radiation and incoming longwave radiation Information about the stream and road network (location, width, etc.)
Output Parameters There are a number of different types of output that the model can produce. In short, the following possibilities are available: DHSVM hydrologic output Default output (these files are always produced) Model state files Network flow files Travel time based hydrograph file Optional output files Sediment Module output Default output (these files are always produced) Network flow files Optional output files
