Dear Sir/Madam,

I am working my MSc thesis to assess the water level fluctuation of Lake Tana, source of Blue Nile, due to water resource development projects. I know that WEAP can work volume Vs elevation at the end of each month. But I am more interested in Area Vs elevation, so would you help me how to tackle this issue using WEAP?

If you are interested in Area vs Elevation then you will have to
covert the volumes to areas using the relationship: Area=aCapacity
exponent b, where a and b are constants that are derived from area vs
capacity (volume) of the dam. I would assume the Lake have area vs
capacity relationships already existing so that it will be easy for
you to establish the constants a and b
