Fox River Watershed Investigation: Stratton Dam to the Illinois River: Phase II, Hydrologic and Water Quality Simulation Models, Part 1: Methodology and Procedures for Development of HSPF Models Singh, Jaswinder, Alena Bartosova, Mustafa Rahim, Sally McConkey., 2007  Illinois State Water Survey, Champaign, IL,  ISWS CR 2007-02    Full Text Available
This report summarizes methods and procedures for calibration of watershed loading models. It describes data assimilation, model structure, and calibration and validation procedures carried out to prepare watershed models for the study area, Fox River watershed from Stratton Dam to the Illinois River. This report lays the foundation for model development in the study area. Calibration parameters for both hydrology and water quality components of the models are listed. Sources of uncertainty in models are discussed and a procedure for sensitivity analysis of models is established. Companion reports present the specific development of watershed loading models for two tributary watersheds (Blackberry and Poplar Creek) in the Fox River watershed and an assessment of hydrologic model parameters on five additional watersheds. Subsequent reports will present the development of models for the remainder of the study area.
