The video above shows a waterfall in a serene setting. A lot is happening behind the scenes to create this picturesque vista. Rainfall on land creates runoff and therefore stream flow.
Some of this runoff is absorbed into the soil. Some of that flows beneath the ground to the stream and some returns to the air through evapotranspiration. Another part of it percolates
further down through the soil layers to become part of the groundwater, which provides a base level flow for the stream.
Systems in Focus: Water Model
Using Stella Professional, we are able to draw a map that corresponds closely to the physical world and then simulate that map to see what happens. This both increases our understanding of how
this system works and allows us to experiment with different policies that might lead to alternate, more desirable outcomes.
