River flow

The Table below shows the parameters (fields) of struct ShallowWaterRiver, including a description of these parameters, the unit, and default value if applicable. The parameters in bold represent model parameters that can be set through static input data (netCDF), and can be listed in the TOML configuration file under [input.lateral.river], to map the internal model parameter to the external netCDF variable. The parameter river bed elevation zb is based on the bankfull elevation and depth input data:

[input.lateral.river]
bankfull_elevation = "RiverZ"
bankfull_depth = "RiverDepth"
