If the base period of a 6 hr unit hydrograph (UH) of a basin is 84 hours, then a 12 hr unit hydrograph derived from this 6 hr unit hydrograph will have a base period of :

Detailed Solution for Test: Hydrology - Question 6

To obtain 12 hr UH, we lag 6hr UH by another 6 hours hence, base period of 12 hr UH is 84 + 6 = 90 hr.

Test: Hydrology - Question 24

The average surface area of a reservoir in the month of June is 20 km2. In the same month, the average rate of inflow is 10 m3/s, outflow rate is 15 m3/s, monthly rainfall is 10 cm, monthly seepage loss is 1.8 cm and the storage change is 16 million m3. The evaporation (in cm) in that month is:

Detailed Solution for Test: Hydrology - Question 24

Concept:

Water budget method:

By applying mass balance around water body and by writing water budget equation, evaporation is estimated.

Water budget equation around water body is

Σinflow - Σoutflow = ± ΔS

Σinflow includes rainfall and runoff

Σoutflow includes water used, evaporation and seepage

ΔS = change in storage

ΔS is positive when water level rises.

ΔS is negative when water level falls.

Calculation:

Let ‘x’ cm evaporation takes place in month of June.

Total inflow in cm

=10×30×24×60×6020×106×100+10

= 139.6 cm

Total outflow in cm

=15×30×24×60×6020×106×100+1.8+x

= (196.2 + x) cm

As total outflow is more than total inflow, therefore depression in storage takes place.

Depression in storage (ΔS)

ΔS=−16×10620×106×100=−80cm

Σinflow - Σoutflow = ± ΔS

139.6 - (196.2 + x) = - 80

– x = - 80 + 56.6

∴ Evaporation in month of June = x = 23.4 cm
