The selection of numerical model and the transformation of catchment data into ‘input data’ are two fundamental problems in urban runoff simulation. They are discussed from a general point of view. A numerical solution method for the kinematic wave equations is proposed for base catchment modeling. In connection to this solution a methodology for the generation of input data representing the individual base catchment is presented.
