Physically-based, deterministic models, are considered in this paper. Physically-based, in that the models have a theoretical structure based primarily on the laws of conservation of mass, energy, or momentum; deterministic in the sense that when initial and boundary conditions and inputs are specified, the output is known with certainty. This type of model attempts to describe the structure of a particular hydrologic process and is therefore helpful in predicting what will happen when some change occurs in the system.
