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

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

Approach:
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.
