Activity 1

Part A

Calculate the Rainfall Excess (in mm) and the losses (both in mm and as a percentage
of rainfall) for the storm shown in the table over the page. The catchment area
contributing runoff to the stream gauge is 107 ha.

Part B

Draw the catchment area boundary on the contour map shown on page 3. The outlet
to the catchment is located at the cross marked on the main stream.

Part C

Monthly average rainfalls (mm) for a city are given below:


20, 22, 25, 35, 54, 25, 65, 50, 45, 40, 30, 25
Calculate seasonality index for the rainfall pattern for this city.

Part D

For an infiltration rate test, the following parameters were measured:


Initial infiltration rate = 15 mm/hr
Final infiltration rate = 2 mm/hr
Infiltration rate after 2 days = 10 mm/hr

Determine the recession co-efficient of the soil on which test was conducted.
