intro story Lake


Lakes and reservoirs are important resources for communities around the globe. They provide food, drinking and irrigation water and can also offer spots for recreation. Under certain conditions lakes can also represent a threat for local communities, such as flooding or limnic eruptions. The ecological state of shallow lakes may be hampered by suspended sediments due to wind driven currents and waves. In deep lakes, stratification can cause undesirable anoxic conditions in the deeper areas. Understanding these systems is crucial to enable a sound management of these water bodies.

Hello all,

one of my model won't work due to error consecutive time on .eva file. this file contain daily data of whole year. So, I have plus 3  days more. But, the error remained the same. Can anyone have any idea? 

Here is all messages in td-diag:
