Evolutionary Computation Technique Applied to HSPF Model Calibration of a Spanish Watershed
Hydrological Simulation Program Fortan (HSPF) is a mathematical modelling program developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). HSPF is used for simulating of watershed hidrology and water quality. In this paper, an evolutionary algorithm is applied to automated watershed model calibration. The calibration stage of the model is very important in order to reduce the errors in hydrological predictions. Results show the capacity of the proposed method to simulate watershed streamflows.
