Three separate hydrologic models were used to simulate storm runoff in the Hahn Arroyo Watershed, an urbanized watershed with concrete lined channels in the northeastern quadrant of Albuquerque, New Mexico that exhibits flashy, monsoonal-driven, storm runoff events. This data release contains the input and output files associated with the hydrologic simulations of each of the following models: Hydrologic Engineering Center Hydrologic Modeling System (HEC-HMS), Program for Predicting Polluting Particle Passage through Pits, Puddles and Ponds (P8), and Arid-Lands Hydrologic Model (AHYMO). The study was designed to compare three existing rainfall-runoff modeling software packages to determine which provided the best balance of accuracy and usability for simulating storm runoff in small watersheds in the Albuquerque urbanized area. Model simulations were completed for the years 2011-14. Results were used in the associated Scientific Investigations Report "Comparison of Storm Runoff Models for a Small Watershed in an Urban Metropolitan Area, Albuquerque, New Mexico" (Shephard and Douglas-Mankin, 2020).
