“PRINCIPLES OF HYDROLOGY”
Assignment #3: Modelling the Soil Water Budget and Sensitivity Analysis (38 marks total; worth 10% of grade)
The objectives of the assignment are to:
You need to construct a water budget at a monthly timescale given only some basic climatological variables. The scale of measurement is a 1 m x 1 m x 1 m block of loam soil. ET is to be estimated using the Thornthwaite Method (learned in class, but your TA’s will go over it as well). I’ve included a very detailed “tips sheet” about how to go through the other numbers, literally step by step.
You will also have to do some sensitivity analysis (tweaking of parameters and looking at effects). This is almost always done in modelling. Make sure you are familiar with the “copy worksheet” function in Excel as your workbook will end up with several embedded worksheets. This saves an enormous amount of time. Your TA’s will show you how in tutorial.
Assignment format and submission instructions: Submit both your assignment questions (as a Word document using 12-point font) and your spreadsheet model (as an Excel file) via Quercus. To submit your assignment, click on the assignment for your particular tutorial section in the week 7 module tab and then click on the submit button in the upper right corner. Where an answer requires a graph, copy the graph from your spreadsheet and paste into the Word document (suggest “paste special” and choose pdf or picture). Organize your assignment according to the order of the questions below.
Specific to this assignment: Simply refer to your model for your answers to questions 1 through 4. The rest of the assignment should be submitted as one Word document with embedded graphs.
