storage equation


It states that the fluid inflow to a given space during an interval of time minus the outflow during the same interval is equal to the change in storage. It is applied in hydrology to the routing of floods through a reservoir or a reach of a stream. The moisture-continuity equation applied to the atmosphere is a modification of this.
