Selected Research Projects and Activities:

BSTEM: The Bank Stability and Toe Erosion Model (BSTEM) is an MS Excel spreadsheet tool used to simulate stream bank erosion in a mechanistic framework. It has been successfully used in a range of alluvial environments in both static mode to simulate bank stability conditions and design of stream bank stabilization measures. In combination with the submodel RipRoot, reinforcing effects of riparian vegetation can be quantified and included in analysis of mitigation strategies. More …

CONCEPTS: The CONservational Channel Evolution and Pollutant Transport System (CONCEPTS) computer model simulates the evolution of incised streams and evaluates the long-term impact of rehabilitation measures to stabilize stream systems and reduce sediment yield. CONCEPTS simulates unsteady, one-dimensional flow, graded sediment transport, and bank-erosion processes in stream corridors. It can predict the dynamic response of flow and sediment transport to instream hydraulic structures.  More …

Subcommittee on Sedimentation: The Subcommittee on Sedimentation of the Advisory Committee on Water Information promotes collaboration on the sediment issues; and advances in information gathering, storing, and sharing; for decision making about natural resources management and environmental protection.
