Abstract

TOPMODEL (a TOPography based hydrological MODEL) is now 20 years old and has been the subject of numerous applications to a wide variety of catchments. This paper represents a critical review of some of the issues involved in application of the TOPMODEL concepts, including the basic assumptions involved; the derivation of topographic index distributions from digital terrain data; additional model components; meaning and calibration of the model parameters; and issues involved in model validation and predictive uncertainty. The aim is to provoke a thoughtful approach to hydrological modelling and the interaction of modelling and field work. Some recommendations are made for future modelling practice.
