Modular Assessment of Rainfall-Runoff Models Toolbox (MARRMoT) v1.2 - Matlab code for 46 conceptual hydrologic models Wouter J. M. Knoben Jim E. Freer Keirnan J. A. Fowler Murray C. Peel Ross A. Woods

Short summary
Computer models are used to predict river flows. A good model should represent the river basin to which it is applied so that flow predictions are as realistic as possible. However, many different computer models exist, and selecting the most appropriate model for a given river basin is not always easy. This study combines computer code for 46 different hydrological models into a single coding framework so that models can be compared in an objective way and we can learn about model differences.
