Hydrologic information is used to estimate the parameters of regional models so that they can be transferred to other sites where information is needed. In this study, an analysis is performed to obtain the best representative model with the available parameters to minimize the model error variance. The number of runoff stations, their locations, and the length of records are used to determine the sampling error variance for each station. The prediction error variances are determined with different station numbers by considering the length of records and cross correlation values.
