All models are wrong, but are they useful? Assessing reliability across multiple sites to build trust in urban drainage modelling

Data sets

Dataset for Bellinge: An urban drainage case study A. N. Pedersen, J. W. Pedersen, A. Vigueras-Rodriguez, A. Brink-jær, M. Borup, and P. S. Mikkelsen

Short summary
A framework for assessing the reliability of urban drainage models is developed in this paper. The method applies observation data from water level sensors and model results for up to 10 years of data for 23 sites in two case areas in Odense, Denmark. With the use of signatures as a method to extract information from the time series, it is possible to differentiate the performance for different model objectives.
