  • Improvement

    1. A ponding water scheme is added in the automatic irrigation calculation; useful when a certain depth of ponding water to maintain in irrigation (e.g., flooding irrigation in rice crop-field).
    2. Irrigation fraction can be specified for all surfaces (previously only available for vegetated surfaces)
    3. A U-shape approach for calculating HDD/CDD is introduced to account for a wide comfort zone between heating and cooling critical temperatures.
  • Changes

    1. A new [RoughLenHeatMethod]{.title-ref} option `5`: adaptively choose option [1]{.title-ref} for fully pervious surface or [2]{.title-ref} otherwise (if any impervious surface exists).
    2. A new column [H_maintain]{.title-ref} is added in [SUEWS_Irrigation.txt]{.title-ref} to set ponding water depth.
    3. New columns to specify irrigation fractions for non-vegetated surfaces in [SUEWS_SiteSelect.txt]{.title-ref}.
    4. A new scheme option [BaseTMethod]{.title-ref} in [RunControl.nml]{.title-ref} to set calculation scheme for HDD/CDD.
  • Fix

    NONE.

  • Known issues

    1. Wind direction is not currently downscaled so non -999 values will cause an error.
