Numerical simulation of runoff from extreme rainfall events in a mountain water catchment

J. Burguete, P. García-Navarro, and R. Aliod

Abstract. A numerical model for unsteady shallow water flow over initially dry areas is applied to a case study in a small drainage area at the Spanish Ebro River basin. Several flood mitigation measures (reforestation, construction of a small reservoir and channelization) are simulated in the model in order to compare different extreme rainfall-runoff scenarios.
