Short summary
HidroCHEP is a toolbox which supports the formulation and hydrologic characterization of Colombian basins. In this paper, we report the design, architecture, implementation and use of the toolbox, to understand the climatic variability of the country and to improve predictions in ungauged basins. It is demonstrated that the toolbox has the potential to support the formulation of basin management plans in the country and to contribute to integrated national water resources management.
