 Summary:
 This paper presents the calibration and verification of a looped river network model. The model was calibrated by altering the Strickler’s coefficient using three different approaches, by simply assigning a constant value of the Strickler’s coefficient in a cross section, defining the Strickler’s coefficient as a function of the discharge, and finally by associating the Strickler’s coefficient to the local depth .The verification is conducted by comparing the computed results, for all of the considered methods with measurements on the Danube River for the time interval from January 1st to December 31st of the year 2006. Careful examination of the results allowed the selection of the most suitable calibration method for future reference.
