* Delineate and filter stream segment networks
* Compute earth-system variables for stream segments in a network
* Assess debris-flow probabilities using the models of Staley et al., 2017
* Assess potential sediment volumes using the models of Gartner et al., 2014
* Classify relative hazards using the methods of Cannon et al., 2010
* Export results to GeoJSON and common GIS file formats
