CFE (Conceptual Functional Equivalent) is a simplified conceptual model written by Fred Ogden that is designed to be functionally equivalent to the National Water Model. To see the original author code, which is not BMI compatible, please refer to the original_author_code directory. For more information on the hypotheses and ideas underpinning the CFE model, see the T-shirt Approximation of the National Water Model versions 1.2, 2.0, and 2.1 section of this document. The remainder of this document discusses the BMI enabled and expanded CFE model.
Detailed instructions on how to build and run CFE can be found in the INSTALL guide.
A detailed description of the parameters for model configuration is provided here.

We are constantly looking to improve the model and/or fix bugs as they arise. Please see the Git Issues for known issues or if you want to suggest adding a capability or to report a bug, please open an issue.
