Correlation between SDRxSWY Models

It is very common to find literature comparing the SDR model with the water production model, is there any correlation between the two? is it important to have both in the same survey?

Hi @Mariane -

No, it is not important to have both in the same analysis. I’m not sure which studies you’ve looked at, but it is often the case that people who are interested in water quality (SDR) are also interested in water quantity (Annual or Seasonal Water Yield), so may use both of the models to evaluate those two services. They are not linked in any way, and there is no requirement to use them together.
