Lateral inputs can be added to the river network topology. These can be used to model tributaries not explicitly modelled as a branch. The discharge allocated to the lateral input is typically a time series, or a given constant value.
Definition of lateral input is done a single XML file, giving the location of the lateral on the river network in the same way as was the case for the cross sections.
