Questions about the results of the seasonal water yield model
After running the seasonal water yield model successfully， B.tif from the model's results were analyzed . Different from the results from your Myanmar research，vegetation covered areas of my study area tended to have lower baseflow. The Highest mean value was found in built-up area and bare lands and the lowest mean value was in water bodies.The grassland and forest had the medium baseflow and the mean value of grassland was twice as high as that of forest.I find that these results of mine are similar with Mesfin Sahle et al.（2019) in certain degrees.Though the model results may differ in some aspects from different studies，are there some general rules of this model's results？And if possible, could you help me with finding some reasons for these results so that I may explain or improve them?
PS:Following the method to assess flood risk reduction in your Myanmar research, the flood risk reduction index was also calculated from the monthly results of quick flow and precipitation. The result of this index seemed more reseanable. Similar with the Myanmar research，the mean value of flood risk reduction index in vegetation covered areas was higher.
Looking forward to your early reply,thank you!
