19 Watershed & Water Quality Modeling Technical Support Center Set Up Exchanges 1)Turn on “Surface Water” 2)Define “Exchange Function” as “Lateral Dispersion” 3)Define Exchanges from Segment one to Segment two 4)Define value as m 2 /sec

20 Watershed & Water Quality Modeling Technical Support Center Set Up Exchanges WASP Structure of Exchanges requires E 12 = Dispersion Exchange Coefficient [m2/s] A 12 = Cross-section Dispersion Area [m2] L 12 = Characteristic Dispersion Length [m] typically defined as 0.5*( L 1 + L 2 ) where L 1 and L 2 are the lengths of segments 1 and 2. Therefore, Area = 100 m 2 and Distance = 10 m
