This book presents the main hydrological methods and techniques used in the design and operation of hydraulic projects and the management of water resources and associated natural risks. It covers the key topics of water resources engineering, from the estimation of runoff volumes and unit hydrographs to the routing of flows along a river and through lakes, reservoirs, and hydraulic structures. It deals with questions regarding basic hydrological data, hydrological modeling and the prediction and forecasting of low flows and flood discharges.This technique can detect certain anomalies that are difficult or even impossible to detect with numerical criteria. ... Choosing the right level of calibration automation Manual calibration is intrinsically subjective. ... processing power of recent computers has led to the widespread use of automatic calibration methods .
