HYPERstreamHS inherits the core features of the HYPERstream routing scheme recently presented in the work from Piccolroaz et al. (2016), while improving it by means of a dual-layer MPI framework and the inclusion of explicit modelling of streamflow alterations due to Human Systems (hence, the HS suffix to the model’s name). HYPERstream is a multi-scale streamflow routing method based on the Width Function Instantaneous Unit Hydrograph (WFIUH) approach; this approach has been specifically designed for reliably simulating the relevant horizontal hydrological fluxes preserving the geomorphological dispersion of fluxes and thus being able to perform well at different scales, from a single catchment to the meso-scale
