Surface hydrology

We supply software that you could otherwise purchase from Aquaveo.

How do we define surface hydrology? Firstly by saying that the focus is on water balance modelling to account for rainfall, interception, infiltration and evapotranspiration, with the usual goal of predicting streamflows. In Australia we'd say catchment modelling, whereas in the USA, the more common term would be watershed modelling. There are important differences between how one would simulate individual flood events, and the long-term behaviour of catchments, but good software will handle both.

Discounts are available for purchasing multiple copies, if the software is to be used for academic/research purposes, and in some case for purchase by government agencies.
