Full Equations (FEQ) Model Web Resources

FEQ is a computer model for simulation of one-dimensional unsteady flow in open channels and through control structures. The structure of the program is designed to follow the structure of a stream system and provide maximum generality and flexibility. FEQ can be applied to simulate a wide range of stream configurations including loops and lateral-inflow conditions. Special features such as...

Fish Telemetry

To monitor fish movement in selected rivers, the USGS has installed near real-time receivers for fish tags. These receivers detect the presence of acoustic tags that have been surgically implanted into a variety of fish species. The tag detection data can provide information about how far fish are moving in a river system, changes in fish population distribution, and, when viewed with flow and...

River WebCams for the Central Midwest Water Science Center (Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri)

We have installed webcams at a number of locations in the Central Midwest Water Science Center to allow you to view, in real time, the current conditions.  Some of the cameras allow users to temporarily control the tilt, pan, and zoom.  During periods of flooding the Central Midwest Water Science Center may take control of the camera.
