The science behind hydrology is on the move for major advances in the hydrological measurements, new methods for analyzing data about hydrology, and on the move for new approaches to simulate the hydrological systems. The focus in this research is to advance the hydrological science. The main objective is to ask: how to develop better hydrological measurements, analyses, and simulate calibrated models in order to get accurate readings. Quantitative amount of data was collected to get a better visualization and understanding of what the research goal was. The two models that were used were the SWAT Model and the SNTHERM Model. They were calibrated to see which model was most accurate and closest to the NOHRSC product. Future research is still needed to improve the results
