Description

Calculate maximum distance at which streamflow depletion will exceed a user-selected threshold. Note that this only considers a single stream - depletion apportionment does not occur.

depletion_max_distance(
  Qf_thres = 0.01,
  d_interval = 100,
  d_min = NULL,
  d_max = 5000,
  method = "glover",

Arguments

Qf_thres

streamflow depletion fraction (Qf) threshold used to define maximum distance. Defaults to 0.01 (1%).

d_interval

interval to use for testing; this defines the spatial resolution at which output will be returned [L]

d_min

minimum search distance [L]. If 'Qf' < 'Qf_thres' at 'd_min', function will return 'd_min' and a warning. If ‘d_min'=NULL (default), 'd_min' will be set to 'd_interval’'

d_max

maximum search distance [L]. If 'Qf' > 'Qf_thres' at 'd_max', function will return 'd_max' and a warning.

method

analytical solution to use (options= 'glover', 'hunt'). Defaults to 'glover'.

t

time you want output for [T]

S

aquifer storage coefficient (specific yield if unconfined; storativity if confined)

Tr

aquifer transmissivity [L2/T]

...

any other inputs required for your method of choice; for example, hunt needs lmda (streambed conductance)

Details

This function is useful for the 'Expanding' stream proximity criteria described in Zipper et al. (2018).

Value

A numeric of the distance at which streamflow depletion fraction (Qf) drops below the threshold at time 't'.
