Annual water yield model - Zhang coefficient

Hi, Iam from india, iam using the InVEST annual water Yield model, im have a doubt about selecting the zhang coefficient. can any one one please specify the values to be used for my country.

Hi @vijay01996 -

The Zhang coefficient is a way of representing whether rain falls constantly over the course of the year, or more seasonally. I would think that this would be different for different places in India, so the value would be dependent on local conditions. Did you see that the User Guide provides a couple of equations for calculating the Zhang value? Would one of those work for you?
