The Streamflow Synthesis and Reservoir Regulation (SSARR) model is designed to simulate the hydrologic processes in a watershed and hydraulic phenomena in lakes, channels and reservoirs. This presentation summarizes a report prepared for the International Hydrologic Decade which describes the streamflow synthesis portion of the SSARR model and illustrates reconstitution of streamflow resulting from rainfall or snowmelt or a combination of the two on the Willamette Basin Snow Laboratory in the Cascade Mountains of western Oregon. The watershed area was divided into five elevation bands; rainfall, snowfall, and snowpack accumulation, depletion and melt are computed separately for each band.
