Best practice modelling reduces model uncertainties and quantitatively and qualitatively documents any uncertainties and assumptions for user transparency. Conversely, poor modelling practices contribute to uncertainties and increase user distrust in the value of modelling. This paper synthesises existing knowledge and experience on good water modelling practices and principles. Specifically, it provides guidance for new and existing water model development efforts, and informs end users and decision makers about what distinguishes good modelling practices from poor ones. The paper covers the following: 1. An introduction to water models and their role in decision making; 2. An overview of water modelling practices, and the role of best practice modelling in improving model quality and results; 3. A characterisation of best practice modelling in relation to each of the phases and steps in the modelling process, including checklists of things that modelling practice should .....
