Node concentration represents the concentration of constituents
attached to boundary inflows and sources.
The NODE_CONCENTRATION table attaches concentrations to
boundary and source flows defined in HYDRO. The table also assigns a time series to the source.
- Name assigned to the source. An entry here must have the
same name as an entry in the BOUNDARY_STAGE, BOUNDARY_FLOW or SOURCE_FLOW
tables -- by matching names you will attach concentrations to the flow.
- Node number where the flow is applied. This must match the node number
given in the original flow table (it is a bit redundant, but easier to look things up).
- Constituent name. If no output is requested for the constituent
currently it will be ignored.
- Method for filling in data if the time step of the assigned series
is coarser than the time step of the model.
- DSS or text file in which data are stored. Use consistent
case when referring to the same file. You may also enter the word constant
if you would like to assign a constant value to the input (the value will be
entered in the next column).
- The path within the text or DSS file of the time series data.
If you used the constant keyword in the Input File
column, enter the value (e.g. 4.22) here.
- Include Block:
- Multiple sources and sinks can be assigned to a node. They are often kept separate
in order to assign different concentrations to them.
