dc.description.abstractThe primary goal of this research was to evaluate different channel routing methods that are suitable for watershed modeling and to develop channel routing routines that can be incorporated into typical watershed models. The specific objectives were (1) to investigate common channel-routing methods and apply them to a selected watershed model, i.e., the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model; (2) to investigate the discrete Hayami convolution solution for linear diffusion-wave channel routing with uniformly-distributed lateral inflow; (3) to analyze the accuracy of the Muskingum-Cunge method for constant-parameter diffusion-wave channel routing with spatially and temporally variable lateral inflow; and, (4) to evaluate current channel-routing methods in the WEPP model. For the discrete Hayami convolution channel routing, there were two ways of calculating the discrete kernel function values: using the exact point values or the center-averaged values. When the exact point values were used, the mass balance error of channel routing was dependent on the number (en_US
