A few notes about using this model:
- It is possible that the sum of the amount of infiltration, runoff, and evapotranspiration will not add up to exactly the total rainfall. This is due to rounding in the model.
- This model does not predict flooding; it only predicts the distribution of water between infiltration, runoff, and evapotranspiration. A true flooding model is much more complicated. To predict flooding you need a great deal of detail about the whole landscape and years of historical weather and flooding data.
- This runoff simulation is only a simplified way of demonstrating the effects of different land cover and soil types on water distribution.
