Hello, community and software support! My name is Victor and I work for the Environmental Institute of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We are running both SDR and SWY to test their potential in forest recovery scenarios. SDR has prooven to be most effective. However we have encountered some limitations regarding SWY. For exemple:
Obtaining monthly Kc values for natural or anthropic vegetation like forests or fallow/pastures is demanding a great effort of calibration, without a precise level of certainty. From the work of Allen et al. 1998, can we consider to use average Kc values for pastures, since they are not cut during the year (abandoned pastures)?
Does SWY consider slope from the DEM when calculating water balance, quick flow and base flow?
