FlowWorks' Rainfall Mass Balance tool is used for comparing rainfall sites to the cumulative average of related rainfall sites.
You can save settings configured in this tool so that you can re-run a saved rainfall mass balance query without having to re-configure the settings.
1. Open the Rainfall Mass Balance Tool
- Click Analyze. A drop-down menu appears.
- Click Rainfall Mass Balance.
2. Set Up the Rainfall Mass Balance Query
Click here for directions on setting up a rainfall mass balance query.
If you choose any predefined date range from the Date Range menu, the "date range" will always be in relation to the date that you run the template. For example, if you created a rainfall mass balance template in 2014, and the Date Range you chose was Last Year; when you run the template in 2017, FlowWorks will use data from 2016.
3. Click Save Settings
4. Enter a Name for the Settings
5. Click Save Settings
You will be taken back to the Rainfall Mass Balance tool page, where FlowWorks will display "Settings Saved!" for confirmation.
At any time, you can come back to the Rainfall Mass Balance tool and load a set of saved settings. Simply expand the Load Saved Settings drop-down list, choose a save setting, and click Plot Graph.
