Table 1 An example collage of visualizing reservoir and tail water levels based on engineering disciplines

From: Visualization requirements of engineers for risk assessment of embankment dams

Discipline Reservoir and tail water level
Geotechnical Engineers Would like to see the top 10 events that have occurred and study the differential rating & performance for these events.
Geologists Would like to graphically see water levels per cross-section with piezometer readings embedded.
Hydrologists Would like to visualize inflow-volume-duration-frequency curves (1–7 day computed probabilities).
Structural Engineers Would like to see hydrologic loading data for coincident pools for seismic Probable Mass Function’s.
