Reservoir GeometryThe geometry of a reservoir controls its hydraulic behaviour, level dependent release volumes, flood control (spill), direct precipitation input, evapotranspiration, and seepage.
The geometry is defined by a TABLE of a set of triplets, relating reservoir depth with the corresponding area and volumes:
Please note that in the editors km² and Mm³ are being used (also for the effective area) for formatting reasons.
Default geometryThe default geometry is defined by a MINIMUM data set of TWO records:
Geometry editorThe gometry editor helps to define additional triplets of values, anywhere (in terms of reservoir water level) between the extreme points:
Please note that the additional values (for water level and associated surface area and volume) can be entered in arbitrary sequence: the UPDATE button will re-sort the table according to water level, and redraw the graph for area and volume accordingly. Please note, that both surface area and volume are expected to increase monotonously with reservoir level.
