A comparison of curve number based methods for runoff estimation from small watersheds in a semi-arid region of India



A comparison of curve number based methods for runoff estimation from small watersheds in a semi-arid region of India



Hydrology Research: 3, 200



The performance of five curve number based methods, generally employed for estimation of runoff, viz. National Engineering Handbook (NEH-4), storm event (SE), rank order (RO), lognormal frequency (LF) and s-probability (SP), was evaluated using runoff data recorded from three small watersheds in a semi-arid region of India.
