I'm running a FLOW with sediment simulation with a structured grid
and have been using the NetCDF history file for comparing hydro model
output at observation stations I defined. When I enable sediment and
run the simulation, new sediment variables are created in the history
file, but their values are all 0 (specifically, ZRSDEQ, ZBDSED, and
ZDPSED). However, when I look at the R1 and MSED variables in the
NetCDF map file, there are values throughout the model domain for the
entire model simulation, based on my sediment bed initial conditions
and boundary conditions.
Are ZRSDEQ and ZBDSED in the history file and R1 and MSED in the map
file equivalent variables, respectively?
My goal is to compare model and measured suspended sediment
concentration at my defined observation stations. Any thoughts as to
why this is occurring?
