I am new to using iRIC, I am still reading the tutorial
1- I got the results for the example on the tutorial but I don’t understand the difference between:
Depth (m)
Elevation (m)
Water surface (m)

    Depth (m) refers to the distance between the water surface and the bottom of the channel or container, measured vertically downwards. This is often used to describe the amount of water in the channel or container, and can be used to calculate the volume of water present.
    Elevation (m) refers to the height of a point or feature above a reference level, typically the ground surface or sea level. In the context of a channel or container, elevation is used to describe the height of the channel bottom or the top of a structure, such as a weir or a culvert.if you’re looking to improve your coding skills or learn new technologies, Cetpa Infotech offers a range of courses and training programs to help you stay up to date with the latest developments in the field.
