If you are utilizing multiple modules in your analysis, you can select certain field characteristics that will be applied for each module.

For example, selecting a value for Current land use below will utilize that value for each activated module. Note that the specific names of an input might be different between modules. For example, the Water Erosion module has a Current land use option named "Forest", whereas the Groundwater Recharge module has an option named "Forest-mixed." By selecting "Forest" as an option below, the system will automatically store "Forest" for the Water Erosion module inputs, and "Forest-mixed" for the Groundwater Recharge module inputs.

  • Through this menu, you can evaluate multiple fields for RCPP at once, and produce a detailed report in PDF format with pre-screening results and estimated payments.

    You start by selecting one or more previously saved simulations from your account. Next, you provide some basic descriptions of the fields to be evaluated.

    The simulations can take a while to complete. You will receive an email from the system with a spreadsheet of the results once they are ready.
  • Filter your simulations by project:

    Simulations to include in the report:
  • Next, describe the current land use and RCPP practice to evaluate for each field in the simulations you selected in the previous step.

  • Through this menu, you can re-run multiple simulations at once.

    You start by selecting one or more previously saved simulations to re-run. Next, you can optionally specify parameters to be applied to all of the fields within the selected simulations. Lastly, you specify where the results should be saved within your account.

    The simulations can take a while to complete. You will receive an email from the system with the results once they are ready.
  • Filter by project:

    Simulations to include in the batch runs:
  • You will next have the option to provide parameter inputs that will apply to all of the simulations. For example, you can select a land cover change or BMP from the Water Erosion module and estimate its impact on water erosion in each of the simulations you selected in the previous step.

    Click Continue below to proceed. Note that proceeding will clear the map of any fields currently drawn on it, and unload any currently active modules.
  • Click here to activate the modules you wish to include in the batch simulation.

    Click on the module names to describe field features to be applied for each simulation.

    Active Modules Ready for Batch
    Optional:



  • You have several options for how you would like to store the results of the batch simulations. You can opt to store the simulations into a new project, in an existing project (which will overwrite any simulations in that project with matching names), or you can choose to not store them. Regardless of your choice, you will still be emailed a report of the batch simulation results.

    In a new project named:
    In an existing project:
    Store each simulation within its current project.
    Do not save the simulations to my account.
