Exercise 3) Analytical Solution for Streamflow Depletion

Estimate streamflow depletion using Glover’s analytical solution (rather than a numerical model). How do these results compare with those from the numerical model used in the Base Case and in Exercise 1? Explain any differences.

Suggested Approach: Solve Equation 5 for each year of the 200‑year simulation. There are a number of ways to do this, but one reasonable approach is to use formulas in an Excel spreadsheet. This exercise can be completed using information available in this book and the results for Exercise 1.
