Unformatted text preview: for each land area, the daily curve number, maximum soil water retention, daily runoff values and total runoff volume was calculated. Then the runoff values were summed up and plotted and finally the values were written to a text file and the nonzero values were written to the Command Window. I learned a lot about what it takes to calculate the something as simple as the amount of water collected over an area over one full year. There was a lot of different parts that needed to be put into this program. There was not a lot to learn in terms of background but a lot of what had to be learned was the nuances of the programming. The basic concepts were easy enough to learn, but combining everything, such as reading data files, for loops, if/else loops was the main challenge....
