Numerous previous studies have constructed models to estimate base flow characteristics from climatic and physiographic characteristics of catchments and applied these to ungauged regions. However, these studies generally used streamflow observations from a relatively small number of catchments (<200) located in small, homogeneous study areas, which may have led to less reliable models with limited applicability elsewhere. Here, we use streamflow observations from a highly heterogeneous set...[Show more]
