Regarding use of season data

Post by sanjay9376 » Tue May 14, 2019 9:14 am

I have one season data of water and nutrient distribution in soil. Can I use first half data for model calibration and second half data for validation? Please guide me and if it can be done then please tell me reference of the paper if any.

It is quite common to use the first part of the season (let's say a month) for model calibration and the remainder for model validation. You can find many examples on ... references and ... references. Two examples, I have been involved in recently:
