CASC2D

CASCade 2 Dimensional SEDiment (CASC2D-SED) model

The CASCade 2 Dimensional SEDiment (CASC2D-SED) model estimates the runoff hydrograph generated from rainfall events and is capable of of predicting sediment rates across the modeled watershed. It considers spatially and temporally-varying rainfall events and calculates runoff and sedimentation based upon a variety of flow routing, infiltration, detention, sediment transport and erosion algorithms.

Spatial Resolution
The spatial resolution is specified by the defined grid. Grid cells are all equally sized and approximately 100m x 100m.
Temporal Resolution
Time steps are on the order of minutes to hours and the channel time step selected is halved to achieve stability if necessary.
Outputs
Outputs specifics include flow characteristics.
