10 Modeling Input: Upstream Sediment Load 10 Rio Grande

11 Modeling Input: Upstream Sediment Load 11 Rio Grande

12 Modeling Input: Upstream Sediment Load 12 Rio Grande

13 Modeling Input: Tributary Flow 13 Rio Grande Rio Grande at San Acacia has an annual flow of 5.5E+05 acre-ft Simulated area Reclamation (2011). One-Dimensional Modeling and Indicator Results for the Middle Rio Grande, Technical Report No. SRH , Prepared for Middle Rio Grande Project, New Mexico, Upper Colorado Region.

14 Modeling Input: Lateral Sediment Load 14 Rio Grande Reclamation (2011). One-Dimensional Modeling and Indicator Results for the Middle Rio Grande, Technical Report No. SRH , Prepared for Middle Rio Grande Project, New Mexico, Upper Colorado Region. Simulated area Rio Grande at San Acacia has an approximate annual load of 2000 acre-ft/yr

15 Modeling Input: Lateral Sediment Load 15 Rio Grande Reclamation (2011). One-Dimensional Modeling and Indicator Results for the Middle Rio Grande, Technical Report No. SRH , Prepared for Middle Rio Grande Project, New Mexico, Upper Colorado Region. Simulated area

16 Simulation procedure 1.Open “Job_control_Rio.xlsm” 2.Enter path and file name of excel sheets containing the necessary information for each scenario 3.Enter input file names to be created 4.Run macro “create input files” 5.Go to the simulation directory (“runs”) and run files individually or run batch file “batch_curdir_script.vbs” which will run all *.srh files in that directory 16

17 Additional Sediment Scenario Generation 1.Copy S0.xlsm to S#.xlsm 2.Change upstream sediment factor in sheet “SedimentDischarge” 3.Change Arroyo factor in sheet “LateralSediment” 4.Change size distribution in Arroyo size distribution in “LateralSediment” 5.Add additional scenario to “job_control_Rio.xlsm” and recreate input files 17

18 Result Display Procedure 1.For each simulation: a)Open each excel file corresponding to simulation id (e.g. “RioGrande SRH-1D results H0_2055_S0.xlsm”) b)Go to “data” sheet and run macro “import file” c)Select the file *OUT_profile.dat, where * is the simulation name 2.Open the summary Excel file to plot results. All linked files should be open as well if you want data updated. 18
