I'm currently working with the Soil & Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). My task is to model the loading of sodium chloride into streams.
One approach I would like to take is to use the point source rechour.dat file command. The file can contain several variables regarding pollutant load.
ORGPHRis the organic P loading kg/hr,
NO3HRis NO3 loading kg/hr,
DISOXHRis O2 loading kg/hr,
But interestingly enough there is no NaCl loading variable!
Am I able to customize a new variable explicitly NaCl, or will I have to use
CMTl1HR which is a heavy metal loading kg/hr?
I was also thinking I could customize a soil type with high salinity.
To you hydrologists out there: what are my options?
