  • Abstract

An explanatory model class belonging to the family of Space_Time transfer function-Noise process is presented. The paper develops a three-stage iterative procedure for building STTFN models of the rainfall-runoff process.Four precipitation and runoff stations located in a watershed in southern Ontario, Canada, sampled at 15-day intervals are used for the numerical analysis. Three sttf models are idenfified.The model paramteres are estimated by the polytope technique, a nonlinear optimization algorithm. two of the developed space-time models proved adequate in describing the spatio-temporal characteristics of precipitation and runoff time series.
