Question: 1 revisit the hydrologic cycle diagram i drew in class...

Question details

1. Re-visit the hydrologic cycle diagram I drew in class, we define these forms of ET: evaporation from surface ponding (Ei- 3.4 mm/day evaporation from rivers (E2- 0.2 mm/day, we did not draw this arrow in class, but it exists), evaporation from canopy (Es- 0.5 mm/day), evaporation from surface soil (E4.5 mm/day), Transpiration (Tp 2.7 mm/day). Also consider these terms: Infiltration (Inf -2 mm/day), recharge (Rch-0.5 mm/day), precipitation (P-14 mm/day), runoff (from surface ponding to rivers, Rf -3.5 mm/day), basin outflow (Q-3.6 mm/day) Questions: (a) Write a mass balance equation for the surface water (surface ponding + rivers) (5 points) (b) In a span of 10 days, what is the change of surface water storage (surface ponding+ rivers) in the basin? (3 points) (c) (Bonus 2 points) In a span of 10 days, what is the change of water storage in the basin? (d) (Bonus 1 point) what is the baseflow?
