An introduction to the concepts and reductionist approach involved in the modelling of catchment processes influencing the quantity and quality of surface runoff from a catchment. Also introduced are the different forms of models, how these models are combined to provide a catchment modelling system, and implementation of catchment modelling systems inclusive of the calibration and validation of the system. Included in this discussion also is an introduction to the processes influencing the generation and movement of surface runoff and pollutant constituents, and the routing of these flows and constituents along the channels and rivers in a catchment drainage network. Finally, the information and data required for operation of these modelling systems and sources of this information are also discussed.
