This layer represents the net supply of water remaining after evapo-transpiration losses (mm/yr) as an indicator of water- flow regulation. Although this is a simplified view and does not consider low flows or flood flows, it permits national assessment with the use of a nationally applicable water-balance model (similar to the tier 1 approach in Kareiva et al. (2011)). WATYIELD (Fahey et al., 2010) models daily water transfers of rainfall, interception, evapotranspiration, and drainage associated with a soil profile. Input data to the model are daily rainfall and daily potential evapotranspiration (PET). Parameters required for the model included the fraction of intercepted rainfall, vegetation factors for transpiration, and total and readily available water holding capacity of the soil.
