Short summary
The paper presents original research about storm movement effects on runoff modelling at the basin scale instead of the conventional laboratory scale. It is essential to find that neglecting storm movement may bring artifacts to parameters when calibrating hydrological models; slow movement of storm has a more significant effect on hydrograph; storm movement on hydrograph modelling becomes visible only when the study area is divided into sub-basins.
