Calibration and validation Bani catchment NS coefficients for calibration vary from 0.91 to 0.99 the y-axis shows start of the period for which the model is calibrated, the x-axis shows the beginning of the validation period Models calibrated to the data from the 60s poorly verified on the data from the 80s
Temporal variability of the HBV model parameters: Bani catchment Analysis of significance of linear regression at 0.05 level An increase of FC, KS, PERC values A decrease of CFLUX values

Hydro-climatic characteristics We analysed the following climate characteristics: Sum of precipitation over 5 year period Maximum daily precipitation Sum of flows over 5 year period, Maximum daily flows Sum of PET over 5 year period Maximum daily PET Sum of air temperature over 5 year period Maximum daily air temperature Aridity index (PET/P) Temp-related Water-related

Influence of climate characteristics on identifiability of model parameters We applied a sensitivity analysis (SA) by Sobol method to assess the identifiability of the HBV model parameters The Sobol method is a well recognized variance-based method SA aims at establishing effect of model parameters on model output The identifiability was assessed by First order sensitivity index – quantifies influence of parameter i on the NS criterion Total order sensitivity index - quantifies influence of parameter i on the NS criterion taking into account its interactions with the other parameters
Influence of climate characteristics on Sobol first order sensitivity index: Bani Water-relatedAir temperature-related Water-related Temp-related
Influence of sum of precipitation on identifiability of model parameters: Bani Two groups of parameters First group (water- related): FC, α, KF and PERC – their identiliability increases with an increase of the amount of water Second group (air temperature-related): β, LP and CFLUX - their identifiability decreases with an increase of the amount of water
Influence of aridity index on identifiability of model parameters: Bani Two groups of parameters First group (water- related) : FC, α, KF and PERC – their identiliability decreses with an increase of aridity index (and sum of PET, sum of air temp, maximum PET, maximum air temp) Second group (air temperature-related) : β, LP and CFLUX - their identifiability increases with an increase of aridity index
Summary (1) The HBV model was calibrated on a series of 5 year periods and validated on other periods in 8 catchments. The results of calibration are very good. Validation of models shows two different patterns: a combination of good and bad years (Allier, Durance, Garonne) or poor validation of almost every model for the last periods (Axe, Wimmera) We analysed the temporal variability of the HBV model parameters in 8 catchments by linear trend analysis. In most catchments (except Wieprz) there was a statistically significant linear trend. The direction of changes and intensity of trend vary between the HBV model parameters and catchments.
Summary (2) In the next step we estimated a dependence of model parameters on climate characteristics (sum and maximum values of precipitation, air temperature, PET, flow and aridity index). Derived regressions are statistically significant at 0.05 level. The direction of changes and intensity vary between catchments and model parameters. Influence of climate characteristics on identifiability of model parameters was assessed by Sobol sensitivity analysis. Results indicate strong dependency between first order Sobol sensitivity index and climatic characteristics. The HBV model parameters were classified into two groups: water-related and air temperature-related.
