The aim of this study is to understand the basic concept and parameters of rainfall-runoff model, and how that concept applies in model as well. And familiar with how to build/develop the models of rainfall-runoff, with more about the practical situations by considering corresponding different parameters according to the seasonal conditions (for example snowfall in winter season and its role according to the temperature), hydrological conditions of site also. Matlab is used as a tool for the developing this model. This type of models are very much useful to calculate the, how much water will enter in to deeper layers of sub-soil surfaces, when rainfall occurs and to calculate the total amount water losses in different forms (for example evaporation from land and transpiration from vegetation and trees) also. Get good experience while working with Matlab to develop the individual group model and while observing the already given scrip for example model to understand as well. While working with this exercise, got good questions about concept and parameters concerned for model development and had good discussion with in the working group and with available assistance/staff.
