StateCU

StateCU software is used to estimate historical consumptive use based on user input data such as water supply, cropping, and climate data.

Major Features:
The featured method is the modified Blaney-Criddle, used to calculate the quantity of water consumed by crops and provides a complete water balance including return flows, shortage, etc. (other available methods include Penman-Monteith and Hargreaves)

  • Relies on user input data such as climate, diversions, irrigated area, cropping patterns, and irrigation efficiency
  • Data can be input directly into the software or can be processed by the StateDMI and TSTool software
  • Results can be used by StateMod (surface water model) as demands to drive the water allocation estimates

Common Uses:

  • Calculate historical consumptive use and return flows for a specific irrigated area
