The Xinanjiang model contained 15 parameters in total, which are listed in Table 1. Each represents the properties of the catchment. Although some insensitive parameters can be obtained from the observed information, the sensitive parameters must be calibrated (Thiemann *et al.* 2001). The range of each parameter is listed in Table 1, which is used for the calibration of the model's parameters.
