Outputs Invest SDR model 3.3.2

I want to know what is the
outputs that show me the SDR value for my watershed in study, like the usle_tot (tons/watershed)
show me in the table attribute??

    Hi @Licia -

    The table output that shows the total amount of sediment that enters the stream is sed_export. usle_tot is the amount of sediment that erodes from the landscape (calculated with the USLE equation), but it may be retained by the landscape and not make it to the stream. The User Guide provides a description of these and other outputs from the SDR model.

  • Thank you Stacie for your response.

    But about the SDR value for watershed, have some table output that have this specific information?

    That  value is in the output shapefile watershed_results_sdr.shp, in the column sed_export. It's not a separate table, but an attribute table of the shapefile. You can either look at the attribute table in a GIS, or just open the .dbf (watershed_results_sdr.dbf) in a spreadsheet program like Excel.
