A two-dimensional mathematical model is developed for the quantitative and qualitative analysis of watershed runoff for a given rainfall event. The runoff is routed through a receiving channel. The model is designed for use on a personal computer. Full documentation is included in the Appendix. The model is capable of accommodating downstream boundary conditions, temporally varied effective rainfall conditions, and spatially varied watershed conditions. Output takes the form of flow depths, discharges, and concentrations. The model was tested for quantity and quality using existing experimental data, and the results are presented herein.
