Abstract. Hydrological models are important and effective tools for detecting complex hydrological processes. Different models have different strengths when capturing the various aspects of hydrological processes. Relying on a single model usually leads to simulation uncertainties. Ensemble approaches, based on multi-model hydrological simulations, can improve application performance over single models. In this study, the upper Yalongjiang River Basin was selected for a case study. Three commonly used hydrological models (SWAT, VIC, and BTOPMC) were selected and used for independent simulations with the same input and initial values. Then, the BP neural network method was employed to combine the results from the three models. The results show that the accuracy of BP ensemble simulation is better than that of the single models.

Short summary
Multi-model ensemble hydrological simulation has been an effective method for improving simulation accuracy. This study explored the feasibility of applying a multi-model ensemble simulation to the upper Yalongjiang River Basin. The results of the BPNN multi-model ensemble simulation are better than that of a single model. Multi-model ensemble simulation should become an important direction in hydrological simulation research.
