This paper presents the calibration and verification of one methodology for computing runoff hydrographs during frequent (i.e., return period of a few days to a few months) single-events (i.e., durations of 0.83–10.5 h), in four small (i.e., 5.97–23.57 ha) urban watersheds of one single predominant land use (i.e., low density residential, high density residential, highway and commercial).
