|Title:||Time of concentration: a paradox in modern hydrology||Authors:||Grimaldi, Salvatore
|Journal:||HYDROLOGICAL SCIENCES JOURNAL||Issue Date:||2012||Abstract:||
The time of concentration is a primary parameter for a variety of modern hydrological models adopted in professional and scientific communities. Nevertheless, a universally accepted working definition of this parameter is currently lacking and several definitions can be found in the technical literature along with related estimation procedures. This study brings to light the inherent variability of these definitions through the empirical analysis of four small basins. These case studies demonstrate that available approaches for the estimation of the time of concentration may yield numerical predictions that differ from each other by up to 500%. © Copyright 2012 IAHS Press.
