The MC model, developed to simulate the simultaneous movements of surface and groundwater flows in a watershed, is applied to three different types of watersheds to demonstrate its characteristics and its flexibility of use. The first case reports on an application where the surface flow and the groundwater flow are of the same importance, the second case reports on one where the surface runoff dominates and lastly we present a study where the groundwater flows are dominant. In each case, we place emphasis on how the MC model can integrate the hydrological system under study for an accurate representation of reality. Examples of results are also included.
