CEQUEAU - CEQUEAU hydrological model
The CEQUEAU hydrological model, developed at the INRS-eau since 1971, is a water balance, distributed parametric model that takes into account the physical characteristics of a watershed as well as their space domain variations. This operation is made possible through a subdivision of the watershed in two discretisations. These two subdivisions allow:
the use of data coming from infra-red and radar imagery;
the use of forecast meteorological data at some or all points of a grid;
to follow the formation and evolution of streamflow in space and time;
taking into account any artificial modifications of the watershed (existing or virtual dams,
deviations, water intakes, etc ..);
simulation the streamflows at any point of the drainage network.
