Real-time Integrated Basin Simulator -tRIBS

Model Category: Numerical

The tRIBS model, which is a distributed hydrology model that allows for the modeling of hydrologic processes in a time-continuous fashion (Ivanov 2006), provides a good framework due to its ability to distribute soil moisture and also account for vegetation effects on the slope. The tRIBS model employs a Triangulated Irregular Network , which is a digital data structure used for the representation of a surface primarily in geographic information system (GIS) applications.

One of the input datasets include: NOAA NWS Precipitation Estimates
