Antecedent Moisture Model (AMM) Overview
Rainfall-runoff dynamics of surface water, combined sewer, and separate sewer systems can be highly impacted by antecedent moisture conditions, or the relative wetness or dryness of the system. Simulating these dynamics with a reasonable degree of accuracy is critical so that predictive models of systems can be developed for risk management, planning, and design of upgrades.
This page presents the results of 25 years of work formulating, applying and refining a hydrologic model that addresses the impacts of antecedent moisture conditions on the rainfall-runoff process. The AMM equations and model process are released into the public domain to aid engineers in analyzing and modeling these systems. References, resources and tools are presented here to help facilitate that process. Please contact us if you have any questions about these materials.

AMM and H2Ometrics
The H2Ometrics platform contains many tools that were specifically developed to aid in the development of AMMs such as data scrubbing tools, diurnal filter tools, I&I computations, I&I metrics, base flow models, AMM model development tools, accuracy of fit metrics, and frequency analysis tools.
