Questions about NDR output

Hello
First of all, thank you for your kind reply.

Today is a question about NDR results.

NDR OUTPUT
x_load_tot = Nutrient retention value?
x_exp_tot = total Nutrient - retention value?
x_export = Nutrient retention pixel?

I did not fully understand the model.
Sorry.
Please answer.

Hi @kims -

Actually, none of the results from the nutrient model are related to retention.

x_load_tot (in the watershed shapefile) is the amount of nutrient produced from each pixel, summed across the whole watershed. it does not take into account the rest of the landscape.

x_exp_tot (in the watershed shapefile) is the amount of x_load that actually reaches a stream, summed across the whole watershed. It does take into account the ability of the vegetation downslope to retain some of the nutrient.

x_export.tif is the amount of nutrient produced on a particular pixel (the nutrient load from that pixel) that actually reaches a stream. This result is used to produce x_exp_tot in the watershed shapefile, by summing the pixel values for export.
