sara4r: An R-GUI for Spatial Analysis of Surface Runoff using the NRCS-CN Method

A Graphical user interface to calculate the rainfall-runoff relation using the Natural Resources Conservation Service - Curve Number method (NRCS-CN method) but include modifications by Hawkins et al., (2002) about the Initial Abstraction. This GUI follows the programming logic of a previously published software (Hernandez-Guzman et al., 2011)<doi:10.1016/j.envsoft.2011.07.006>. It is a raster-based GIS tool that outputs runoff estimates from Land use/land cover and hydrologic soil group maps. This package has already been published in Journal of Hydroinformatics (Hernandez-Guzman et al., 2021)<doi:10.2166/hydro.2020.087> but it is under constant development at the Institute about Natural Resources Research (INIRENA) from the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolas de Hidalgo and represents a collaborative effort between the Hydro-Geomatic Lab (INIRENA) with the Environmental Management Lab (CIAD, A.C.).
