Question: 1 a catchment has an area of 240 hectares during...

Question details

1. A catchment has an area of 24.0 hectares. During a recent rainstorm event, a total of 12.4 mm of precipitation fell on this basin. If 1,840m of surface runoff occurred at the catchment outlet as a result of this storm, determine the following: i) the surface runoff, in terms of depth (in mm) over the i) the percent of the precipitation which was lost to ii) the hydrologic abstractions in terms of depth (in mm) iv) the volume of water (in m3) lost to hydrologic basin area hydrologic abstractions (i.e., the losses to interception, infiltration, etc.) over the basin area abstractions 2. In a subsequent rainstorm, a total of 0.552 inches of precipitation fell on the basin. If 3.47 acre-feet of surface runoff occurred at thee catchment outlet as a result of this storm, and 18.3% of the total precipitation was lost to hydrologic abstractions determine the basins area in acres. the unit acres-feet represents a volume is a standard form of expressing volumes in hydrology. 1 acres-foot is equal to 43,560 ft2 x 1 ft 43,560 ft3 NOTE: I hectare 10, 000 m2 1 acre 43,560 ft2
