|Abstract:||In this paper we describe the spatially distributed LISFLOOD model, which is a hydrological model specifically developed for the simulation of hydrological processes in large European river basins. The model was designed to make the best possible use of existing data sets on soils, land cover, topography and meteorology. We give a detailed description of the simulation of hydrological processes in LISFLOOD, and discuss how the model is parameterised. We also describe how the model was implemented technically using a combination of the PCRaster GIS system and the Python programming language. Finally, we review some recent applications of LISFLOOD, and we present a case study for the Elbe River.|
