The main objective of this report is to describe the calibration, verification, and sensitivity analysis of the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Hydrologic Engineering Center’s Hydrologic Modeling System (HEC-HMS) on the data from the Upper Thames River basin (UTRb) study area. The HEC-HMS model was chosen to be the most appropriate hydrologic modeling tool for achieving the goals set in the Canadian Foundation for Climatic and Atmospheric Sciences (CFCAS) funded project “Assessment of Water Resources Risk and Vulnerability to Changing Climatic Conditions” (“project” hereafter), (Cunderlik and Simonovic, 2003). The calibration, verification and sensitivity analysis of the HMS model are parts of the project Task 1: Development of a hydrologic model (ICLR, 2004).
