Abstract: This paper discusses the conceptual stepped calibration approach (SCA) which has been developed for the Xinanjiang (XAJ) model. Multi-layer and multi-objective functions which can make optimization work simpler and more effective are introduced in this procedure. In all eight parameters were considered, they were divided into four layers according to the structure of XAJ model, and then calibrated layer by layer. The SCA procedure tends to improve the performance of the traditional method of calibration (thus,…
