Short summary
The possibility of using a short period of streamflow data (less than one year) to calibrate a physically based distributed hydrological model is evaluated. Contrary to the common understanding of using data of several years, it is shown that only using data covering several months could calibrate the model effectively, which indicates that this approach is valuable for solving the calibration problem of such models in data-sparse basins.
The possibility of using a short period of streamflow data (less than one year) to calibrate a...
