Hype Model documentation
HYPE is an open source dynamic integrated rainfall-runoff and nutrient transfer model developed and maintained by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI).
HYPE is short for HYdrological Predictions for the Environment and we have a wiki that provides documentation for the HYPE Model.
On our wiki page you can find documentation that cover the following topics and more:
- Hype Model Description: Processes above the ground, land routines, rivers and lakes, nitrogen and phosphorous in land routines, nitrogen and phosphorous in rivers and lakes, water management, deep processes, organic carbon, tracers.
- HYPE File reference: files for model set up, observation data, output, calibration and water balances
- Hype Tutorials: quick guide, HYPE set-up tutorials, updating with observation and more.
The HYPE Model source code is open source and can be downloaded on the sourceforge website.
We are happy to share experience and collaborate world-wide. Please, give us feedback and share your experience! Make your code extensions part of the official code. Join the Forum!
