Rainfall-Runoff Model: Elevation DistributionThe geometry or orography of a catchment is defined by a number of parameters, including
To specify the absolute (and relative) shares of the area in each 100m elevation band, an special editor with a simple graphical feed back is provided.
The number of layers (25) and their vertical extent (100) are fixed. The elevation range (minimum and maximum elevation) and basin size/area independently specified at the Basin Parameter editor level are only used for consistency checking.
Please note: the area specified for each elevation layer is supposed to add up to the total basin area specified; this is used as a test for consistency, even though the model internally corrects for any mismatch to make sure that we base all estimates on 100% of the basin area !
