Provenance The hydrology downscaling was performed with tailored setups of the HYPE model. 
Validation The downscaling made by MATCH in Urban SIS has been validated against observations in Urban SIS deliverable 5.3. Section 4.1 gives a validation of how precipitation data from the HARMONIE-AROME used as forcing for HYPE which can be used for further understanding of validity of the results.
