Graphical user interface for rapid set-up of SHETRAN physically-based river catchment model

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Stephen Birkinshaw, Professor Philip James, Professor John Ewen



The SHETRAN physically-based distributed rainfall-runoff modelling system gives detailed simulations in time and space of water flow and sediment and solute transport in river catchments. It is therefore a powerful tool for studying hydrological and environmental impacts associated with land-use and climate change. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) has been developed that allows a catchment data set to be set up quickly using a minimum of information. The GUI has an algorithm for the automatic generation of river channel networks from a DEM and has access to libraries of soil and vegetation parameters. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
