Questions about seasonal water yield model
I'm using seasonal water yield model to estimate ecosystem services.After learning the users's guide and some recently published articles using this model,I'm still confused about the rainfall events table that is needed to run the model.My study area is over 215000 square kilometers in extent and there are many meteorological stations within and around it，which makes the rainfall events in each month vary among different meteorological stations.Since Mesfin Sahle et al.（2019）uses the averages number of rainy days of 12 years' daily rainfall data from eight meteorological stations as input data for the model，I'm wondering if it's okay to use the averages number of rainy days of long term daily rainfall data from a lot of meterological stations within and around my study area to determine the rainfall events in each month.Also,are there other options to determine the rainfall events?
