MINUHET (Minnesota Urban Heat Export Tool) is a tool used to simulate the flow of stormwater surface runoff and its associated heat content through a small watershed for a rainfall event or events of interest. The main output of MINUHET is a time series of flow rate and temperature at the outlet of the watershed, to enable prediction of thermal impact on receiving streams. MINUHET is event-based, i.e. it is designed primarily to simulate a single storm event. The MINUHET tool includes a database of observed and/or synthetic storm events that have the potential to produce high thermal loading in receiving streams.
