Vegetative Resistance to Flow Data
Entry ID: USGS_SOFIA_veg_resist_flow_data

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: Surface-water flow models are needed to evaluate restoration and management alternatives for the south Florida ecosystem. Model results are sensitive to expressions used to represent flow resistance due to vegetation. The project seeks to develop methods for representing flow resistance due to vegetation types typically found in the Everglades. The project also seeks an understanding of the effect ...
