Can I still choose to store computed hydrographs? 

How do I save my hydrographs computed for my catchments automatically to be used in the "Overlay Hydrographs" calculator?


In previous versions of Pondpack, the user would click a check box in the Compute dialog, to tell Pondpack that the hydrographs computed during the simulation should also be stored in the hydrograph manager.

To do this in Pondpack V8i, go to Analysis > Calculation Options and double click the calculation option associated with the scenario in question (designated by the red check mark). In the properties window, select "True" for "Store Hydrographs (as input)". Then, when you compute your model, the hydrographs will be stored under Components > Hydrographs > Hydrographs.

If you'd like to use these stored hydrographs as input, first lay out a catchment and specify the outflow node that the hydrograph will discharge to. In the properties of the catchment, select "User defined hydrograph" as the "Runoff method". Then, click the dropdown next to the "Hydrograph" field and select the hydrograph from the hydrograph manager that you'd like to inject into the system.
