fluvial-particle, U.S. Geological Survey software release

April 6, 2023

This Python package provides functions to simulate advection and dispersion of numerical particles using a lagrangian particle-tracking algorithm for 2 and 3-dimensionl hydraulic simulation results. Users may customize particle subclasses to provide custom particle classes. For example, the drift of larval fish, by creating classes to add behavior to particles. (McDonald and Nelson, 2021).
