Short summary
A parameter sensitivity analysis was applied to a monthly water balance model across the United States and used to identify regions of similar model response. Streamgages within each region were calibrated as a group to produce model parameters that can simulate streamflow in areas where measured streamflow data are limited or unavailable. Results showed good correspondence with measured values, except in areas where dominant hydrologic processes occurred at submonthly timescales.
