Abstract:

The five work units undertaking the task of increasing the understanding and developing methodologies for estimating volumes of sediment by grain size, from different sediment sources and linking the amounts of nutrients input to the system are ongoing. The results will be forthcoming by the end of FY08. The outcome will be improved estimation of the required sediment source data input for SIAM, Gridded Surface Subsurface Hydrologic Analysis GSSHA, ADaptive Hydrology Hydraulics ADH, and HEC-RASSEDIMENT. Thus research will also aid in validation, calibration and interpretation of these models and provide improved methods for assessing the geomorphic stability of channel systems.
