Successes and challenges from recent applications of an integrated, physically-based model of groundwater/surface water interactions

There is a variety of models and modeling approaches currently in use to simulate the interactions between the different components of the hydrosphere (atmosphere, land surface, soil zone, aquifers, water bodies). Rigorous testing of available models is extremely important. In this paper
we review some recent sensitivity tests, benchmark studies, and other applications conducted for a distributed-parameter, physically-based surface/subsurface model. This brief survey will highlight features and challenges related to this particular model formulation (that uses path-based runoff
routing and boundary condition-based coupling) and will also address some broader issues in integrated hydrological modeling.
