摘要:This paper focuses on the Brutsaert–Nieber(1977)drought flow or baseflow model,and its exact solution recently rediscovered by Ding(2013).The standard model,-d Q/dt=a Qb,is well known for its log(-d Q/dt)versus log(Q)recession–slope plots.On such a plot,exponent b represents the slope of a regression line through the data point cloud,and coefficient or prefactor a the intercept at Q=1.The exact solution method discovered a half–century ago by Ding(1966)transforms instead the flow rate Q by an inverse–fractional–power(IFP)into a new variable,1/Qb-1.The transform solution is 1/Qb-1(t)=1/Qb-1(0)+(b-1)at,if b11.This converts a recession curve into a straight line.Since only two points,regardless of the distance,are required to define a transformed line,the linearized Brutsaert–Nieber model thus becomes temporal scale invariant(a third point in between is needed to falsify the given exponent b value).A nonlinear groundwater storage–discharge relation was previously derived by integrating the recession hydrograph from time t to∞.This,Q=cN SN,has two rescaled parameters N and c,both relate back to Brutsaert–Nieber parameters:N=1/(2-b),c=(2-b)a,and Nc=a.Basin or aquifer characteristics,such as the lagtime or half–life,are analytically derivable from the transform solution and the inferred storage–discharge function.For storage-based lagtime,tS/2=(log 2)/a=0.693/a,if b=1;and((2(b-1)/(2-b)-1)/((b-1)a))Q–(b-1)(0),if b11.Exponent b and prefactor a were recently calibrated by Ding(2013)for four recession events in the Spoon River at Seville,Illinois,USA,a very large watershed of 4237 km2.Units of measurement are days for time t,mm/d for flow rate Q,and mm for storage S;exponent b is dimensionless,and prefactor a has the units of the flow rate Q and of time t.For water supply scenario analysis,three common types of the Ding transform are explored:the linear,and the reciprocals of the cube root and of square root(Ro CR and Ro SR)transforms.Their exponent b values are 1,4/3 and 3/2,respectively.The mean calibrated(b,a)values are(1,0.08),(1.33,0.12)and(1.5,0.15).These are used to construct or infer both the groundwater storage–discharge functions and the storage lagtimes for the Spoon River.The lagtimes(in days)are 8.66,10.33/Q(0)(1/3),and 13.33/Q(0)(1/2),respectively.To summarize,the classical Brutsaert–Nieber groundwater flow recession model and an earlier Ding transform solution complement each other,the former having the latter as an exact solution.On an ungauged watershed,small or large,to set up the model for water yield prediction,this requires a minimum of three new flow measurements in the field during a rainless period,supplemented by concurrent evaporation pan measurements.
