Comparison of Two Commonly-Used Methods for Quantifying Runoff Generation
This module introduces students to two different infiltration approaches: Green-Ampt and SCS (Soil Conversation Service) Curve Number methods. As students work through the module, they compute the amount of runoff generated from a rainfall event for an actual watershed, learn the details of each approach and how each method is implemented, an gain valuable insight as to the strengths and limitations of each.
