Abstract:
The HYDROPAC model was developed to improve the technology transfer from the science of hydrology to environmental planning disciplines by initiating advanced spatial analysis techniques for predicting rainfall-runoff relationships. This model integrates the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) equations for calculating runoff and a Geographic Information System (Map Analysis Package) in a framework that allows the simulation of runoff processes over a digital elevation model. The simulations are done in discrete time steps allowing the generation of a hydrograph at any desired point in the watershed and the overland flow patterns are displayed in maps. This framework addresses some of the current limitations of hydrologic model for stormwater management planning in terms of capabilities for analysis and communication of results. This manuscript describes the methods used to develop the framework of the HYDROPAC model and its usefulness for analyzing potential runoff problems during the planning process.
