In this model, the sub-basins output hydrographs have been calculated by Nash’s black box model, considering the geomorphological properties of the sub-basins; then the obtained hydrographs have been routed through the main channel using the non-linear kinematics wave model. The two most important characteristics of the model are: (a) it explicitly includes the watershed morphology in the formulation and (b) it depends on only one uncertain parameter which must be calibrated. The result of the model has been compared with Nash’s black box model and another gemorphological model i.e., SCS, for Ammameh watershed in central Iran. Combination of a non-linear distributed routing model (i.e., kinematics wave) and a linear lumped rainfall-runoff model (i.e., Nash’s model) causes the proposed model to be a proper runoff routing model.]]>Agirre, U., M.
