The Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) model is a macroscale
hydrologic model that solves full water and energy balances, originally
developed by Xu Liang at the University of Washington (UW).
The version of VIC source code used is of 5.0.1 on < https://github.com/UW-Hydro/VIC/>,
see Hamman et al. (2018).
Development and maintenance of the current official version
of the VIC model at present is led by the UW Hydro (Computational Hydrology
group) in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UW. VIC is
a research model and in its various forms it has been applied to most of the
major river basins around the world, as well as globally
