Run with the provided hydrological model function


Function which performs a single model run with the provided function over the selected period.


RunModel(InputsModel, RunOptions, Param, FUN_MOD, ...)



[object of class InputsModel] see CreateInputsModel for details


[object of class RunOptions] see CreateRunOptions for details


[numeric] vector of model parameters (See details for SD lag model)


[function] hydrological model function (e.g. RunModel_GR4J, RunModel_CemaNeigeGR4J)


(optional) arguments to pass to FUN_MOD


If InputsModel parameter has been created for using a semi-distributed (SD) lag model (See CreateInputsModel), the first item of Param parameter should contain a constant lag parameter expressed as a velocity in m/s, parameters for the hydrological model are then shift one position to the right.


[list] see RunModel_GR4J or RunModel_CemaNeigeGR4J for details.

If InputsModel parameter has been created for using a semi-distributed (SD) lag model (See CreateInputsModel), the list value contains an extra item named QsimDown which is a numeric series of simulated discharge [mm/time step] related to the run-off contribution of the downstream sub-catchment.

## loading catchment data

## preparation of the InputsModel object
InputsModel <- CreateInputsModel(FUN_MOD = RunModel_GR4J, DatesR = BasinObs$DatesR,
                                 Precip = BasinObs$P, PotEvap = BasinObs$E)

## run period selection
Ind_Run <- seq(which(format(BasinObs$DatesR, format = "%Y-%m-%d")=="1990-01-01"),
               which(format(BasinObs$DatesR, format = "%Y-%m-%d")=="1999-12-31"))

## preparation of the RunOptions object
RunOptions <- CreateRunOptions(FUN_MOD = RunModel_GR4J,
                               InputsModel = InputsModel, IndPeriod_Run = Ind_Run)

## simulation
Param <- c(X1 = 734.568, X2 = -0.840, X3 = 109.809, X4 = 1.971)
OutputsModel <- RunModel(InputsModel = InputsModel,
                         RunOptions = RunOptions, Param = Param,
                         FUN_MOD = RunModel_GR4J)
