Data from "A brief analysis of conceptual model structure uncertainty using 36 models and 559 catchments"

Data generated for the paper "A brief analysis of conceptual model structure uncertainty using 36 models and 559 catchments".

Briefly, we simulate streamflow in 559 non-human impacted catchments across the United States, using 36 unique lumped (i.e. catchment-averaged) hydrological model structures. We calibrate the models and quantify the accuracy of the simulations using three different objective functions. This gives a total sample of 60732 model application test cases.

This data set contains for each combination of model, catchment and objective function the (i) calibrated parameter values, (ii) objective function values during the calibration and evaluation period, (iii) time series of simulated fluxes and model states, and (iv) duration of model warm-up period. General settings and calibration choices are given in the metadata of each file.

The input data and models used to generate this data set are freely available from their respective references (given in the readme file).
