Ranking of soil texture index for the baseflow objective
I'd just like to get confirmation of a possible misprint in the RIOS documentation.
On page 52, it shows that soil texture index is minimized for the ranking of baseflow. This is indicated by the ~ sign. However, based on the explanation at the bottom of the page, soil textures with higher values (indicating finer textures) should be ranked higher because they will saturate faster and produce more runoff. And activities should be done on places producing more runoff.
Is the ~ a misprint? Shouldn't we need to assign higher rankings to finer textures?
