Short summary
A sensitivity analysis based on a simulator of hydrograph parameters (volume, maximum flow) is shown. The method allows us to analyze the impact of calibrated hydrodynamic model parameters, including rainfall distribution and intensity, on the hydrograph. A sensitivity coefficient and the effect of the simulator uncertainty on calculation results are presented. This approach can be used to select hydrographs for calibration and validation of models, which has not been taken into account so far.
