On the importance of including vegetation dynamics in Budyko's hydrological model

Donohue, Randall; Roderick, Michael; McVicar, Tim R


The Budyko curve describes the patterns observed between between climate, evapotranspiration and run-off and has proven to be a useful model for predicting catchment energy and water balances. In this paper we review the Budyko curve's underlying framework and, based on the literature, present an argument for why it is important to include vegetation dynamics into the framework for some purposes. The Budyko framework assumes catchments are at steady-state and are driven by the macro-climate,...[Show more]
