An Investigation of Errors in Distributed Models’ Stream Discharge Prediction Due to Channel Routing

The authors substitute RAPID which is based on the simplified linear Muskingum routing method by the nonlinear routing component the Iowa Flood Center have incorporated in their full hydrologic Hillslope‐Link Model. The results show improvement in model performance across scales due to incorporating new routing methodology.
