Details

The flow is represented using 'FLOW-CHANNEL' and 'FLOW-DELIVERY' nodes from CALSIM II. The nodes and calculation for each watershed are outlined above.

The Sutter and Yolo Bypasses' flows are stored in a seperate dataset bypass_flows to enable the habitat segmentation in the bypasses according to weir locations.

The Lower-mid Sacramento River has two nodes, one above Fremont Weir (C134) and one below (C160). When calculating habitat for the Lower-Mid Sacramento river, calculate the habitat at each flow node and sum them proportion to the length of stream above and below the weir:

35.6/58 * (habitat at C134) + 22.4/58 * (habitat at C160)

*Because there are no modeled flows at Bear Creek, flows at Paynes Creek are used

**Mokelumne River flow is from a separate model provided by EBMUD.
