Abstract

How good should a river basin model be to assess the impact of climate change on river flooding for a specific geographical area? The determination of such an appropriate model should reveal which physical processes should be incorporated and which data and mathematical process descriptions should be
used at which spatial and temporal scales. It should be based on sensitivities and a right balance between uncertainties of inputs, parameters and process
descriptions resulting in an output uncertainty acceptable for the model user and feasible in view of data availability and computational possibilities. A procedure for determining an appropriate model is explained and applied to the above mentioned specific case. The results obtained with the appropriate model are compared with observations, results obtained with a simpler and a more complex model and uncertainties in the results.
