Finding an effective method to upscale or downscale hydrological processes is the central concern in hydrological research. The aim of this paper is to investigate a powerful, regulated relationship between runoff and catchment area, and establish the runoff scale transfer model for Gongga Mountain in China. We chose a series of catchments 5 in which the contributing areas ranged from 0.41 km 2 to 80.5 km 2 to monitor the hymeasure. One common similarity measure is spatial proximity, based on
