Ontario government publishes integrated water budget modelling guide

Following an extensive 3 year research study, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources has published a guideline report evaluating the applicability of integrated hydrologic models to Ontario watersheds.

The report includes: a qualitative comparison of several integrated model codes including MIKE SHE, GSFLOW, and Hydrogeosphere; recommendations on how to select the appropriate model; example applications of multiple integrated model codes to two case-study watersheds; and guidance to water resource practitioners on how to setup, construct and calibrate the model.
