The HYPE code has been developed since 2003 and was released as an open source code in 2011. With Annual open training courses and global collaboration we try to establish community of technical experts engaged in the HYPE code development. This is for anyone interested in hydrological modelling and source-code development. The HYPE open-source initiative is run by SMHI under the Lesser GNU Public License. The aim is to strengthen international collaboration in hydrological modelling and hydrological data production. Here you find everything you need to know about the HYPE model and new versions of the main code is delivered frequently.
Here you find links on how to get familiar with the HYPE source code:
