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.
