In pondpack, what does the following warning mean: " WARNING: Outflow
hydrograph never crested (last ordinate= max outflow). "

Problem Number 31423


This means that a hydrograph at some point in your system never gets
beyond a peak. Most likely it is getting truncated due to the storm
duration. For example, if the rising limb of the hydrograph is still
increasing at the end of the storm duration, it gets truncated before it
ever peaks. You should look at the hydrographs for this point in the
network. Note that sometimes this will occur during an overtopping
situation, because the hydrograph may remain constant after the overtop
and may not recede before the end of the simulation.
