Mathematical models of the hydrologic rainfall-runoff process are applied, evaluated and compared, using data from urban and natural watersheds. Criteria are developed for use in the selection of an appropriate hydrologic rainfall-runoff model for specific watershed needs. This study is oriented specifically at closing the gap between research and its application by practicing engineers and hydrologists in the water resources field. New models are not developed, but the use of existing models is clarified through a selection display tableau and user oriented computer programs implementing a wide range of rainfall-runoff modles.
