The estimation of the discharge through the IUH explained

Time to time I go back to the estimation of the discharge through the Instantaneous Unit Hydrograph theory (IUH). It is interesting that this almost 90 year old concept is still alive and, being threathened by the studies on residence time from the physical point of view, is still valid when operational  activities are involved, and, in any case, as a benchmark tool.
IUH is at the core of our analysis of peak flows and of the code called PeakFlow in the Horton Machine, and it is known that the concept can include geomorphic characteristics. Many then can be interested in knowing how to estimate it and the manuscript you can access in Authorea, gives a definitive guide to do it.
The manuscript, can be found here.
