Wflow, a modelling platform for hydrological simulations
Wflow is an open source distributed hydrological modelling platform developed by Deltares and targeted to perform hydrological simulations using raster data.
Typical applications of wflow include flood forecasting and impact of climate or land use changes on runoff. Wflow has been successfully applied worldwide for flood forecasting, evaluating the impacts of climate change or (land) management alternatives and inundation modeling.
Wflow is a completely distributed modelling platform which maximizes the use of satellite data. The wflow modelling platform is a completely distributed (gridded), hydrological model that calculates all hydrological fluxes at any given point in the model at a given time step, based on physical parameters and meteorological input data. Major hydrological processes included are snow accumulation and melt, interception, soil moisture percolation and runoff generating processes. The kinematic wave is applied for routing and includes a reservoir module.
