Research Project: Integrating BSTEM into the Physically-Based Hydrologic Model PAWS as Preliminary Work for Modeling Regional Bank Erosion Under Climate Change

Location: Watershed Physical Processes Research

Project Number: 6060-13000-026-15-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 1, 2015
End Date: Sep 30, 2018

Incorporate ARS bank erosion prediction technology from BSTEM and CONCEPTS into the PAWS+CLM hydrologic model for regional scale bank erosion prediction.

Parameterize bank erosion formulation used by the ARS CONCEPTS and BSTEM models on large scales. Incorporate the new formulations into the PAWS+CLM regional-scale hydrologic model. Test the coupled model against observed bank erosion in a small watershed in Pennsylvania.
