Floodplain and Channel Evaluation Tool (FACET)

The Floodplain and Evaluation Tool (FACET) is an open-source python tool that maps the floodplain extent and derives reach-scale summaries of stream and floodplain geomorphic measurements from high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs).

Sediment Source Assessment Tool (Sed_SAT)

A sound understanding of sources contributing to instream sediment flux in a watershed is important when developing total maximum daily load (TMDL) management strategies designed to reduce suspended sediment in streams. Sediment fingerprinting and sediment budget approaches are two techniques, that when used jointly, can qualify and quantify the major sources of sediment in a given watershed. T
