Meaning Run Status

How to describe run status for continuity error, for instance "Suface Runoff -0.25% and flow routing -0.10%. Can you describe what the menaning of the result? Why should be negative in value?

  • The same comments apply to both runoff and flow routing continuity.,

  • The same  comment applies to the total continuity error

           FlowTotals.pctError = 100.0 * (1.0 - totalOutflow / totalInflow);

  • The CE is just the Inflow - Outflow

      x = 1.0 - NodeOutflow[j] / NodeInflow[j];

    If the total  inflow is greater than the outflow then the error  will  be positive

    IF the total   inflow is less  than the outflow  then the error  will be negative

    • Yes I got it runoff continuity error. And how about the flow routing contuinity error?
