NDR and Route DEM
I am running the NDR. The NDR model is running to completion for me but it does not generate any nutrient discharge At first I thought it might have something to do with my nutrient loading values but I did sensitivity test and loaded all the land use codes with Nitrogen loads of 200 and still no discharge so it must be some other problem.
I immediately suspected my DEM.
I am not entirely sure what I am looking for. How do I find the hydrological "pits". I ran my DEM through the Route DEM routine but the documentation advises users to "define file names" I am not well versed in coding and I have NO CLUE how to define file names . . should I assume that the file labeled Stream Mask is the "plateau resolved DEM" ? The only tif my model runs produced that even vaguely resembles a DEM is the slope map.
Once I get a plateau resolved DEM out of the route model can I use that in the NDR ?
Also, the documentation for the NDR suggests that the Nutrient runoff proxy can be an annual precipitation raster . . Do I have to "normalize the raster or will the model do this for me ?
No more questions for now, Can't Wait to hear from You all !
