Hydropedological interpretations of the soils of selected catchments with the aim of improving the efficiency of hydrological models
Expanded Title:The main hypothesis of the research was that soil properties, presented in the form of hydropedological soil maps together with the relevant soil hydrology data, can serve as indicators of the hydrological behaviour of soils in a hillslope, and therefore facilitate prediction of the hydrological behaviour of hillslopes, particularly those in ungauged catchments. Five ctachments were surveyed, they are the Weatherly, Cathedral Peak VI, Two Streams, Craigie Burn and Bedford catchments. Soil data was used as input to ACRU, Pitman, SWAT and Waves. The sopil data improved the efficiency of the models, with the greatest improvement in the models capable of simulating enhanced process complexity.
