Abstract

A performance evaluation of flow predictions from four semi-arid watersheds in Arizona was presented and analyzed. Daily streamflows were computed by the semi-distributed USGS Modular Modeling System (MMS) that uses a conceptual bucket type model to represent the local water balance. The model performance was evaluated and analyzed using three different approaches. The three approaches were compared and conclusions were made regarding the 'optimal' use of such measures.
