2. Adjusting Rainfall Amount

The Runoff Simulation can be accessed online from any web browser or through the Innovative Technology in Science Inquiry (ITSI) portal.

As a “micro” model, there are only a few controls to worry about. At the top right is a slider where you can adjust the level of rainfall within 24 hours from a small rainstorm (equivalent to 1 cm of rain) to a hurricane (21 cm of rain).

As you adjust the slider from left to right, the rainfall increases. The amount of rainfall is shown on the box on the upper left.

Using the slider you can adjust the level of rainfall within 24 hours from a small rainstorm to a hurricane.
