bilan: Bilan water balance model

The input data into the model are daily or monthly series of basin average precipitation and air temperature. The structure of the model is formed by a system of relationships describing basic principles of water balance on ground, in the zone of aeration, including the effect of vegetation cover, and in the saturated zone. Air temperature is used as an indicator of energy conditions, which affect significantly the water balance components, in particular the development and melting of snow cover. The potential evapotranspiration is estimated either by a simple radiation -based method, which considers temperature, day of the year and latitude of the basin or by empirical relationships considering vegetation zone and relative humidity.
