Subject: Using observed elevation for calibrating reservoirs

Hi - For a reservoir that I am modelling I have a time series for observed elevation but not volume. Is there any way that WEAP can convert this to volume internally so I can compare the modelled and observed elevations for calibration?
Thanks!

There is a ElevationToVolume function in WEAP that can do this conversion for you. For example, if your time series of observed elevation data was in a CSV file named ReservoirElevation.csv, you would use the following expression for the Observed Volume variable:

ElevationToVolume( ReadFromFile(ReservoirElevation.csv) )
