Short summary
We evaluated predictive performance of a rainfall–runoff model whose behavioural parameters were gained against flow magnitudes only. The parameter sets did not well reproduce observed flows when comparing to a conventional method simply using a parameter transferred from nearby gauged catchments. This study emphasises that metrics in time dimensions are essential for identifying model parameters and the absence of flow timing information could worsen model performance.
