Streamflow routing in upland channels or channel networks
Entry ID: USGS_DAFLOW
Abstract: Streamflow routing in upland channels or channel networks (DAFLOW) is a digital
model for routing streamflow using the diffusion analogy form of the flow
equations in conjunction with a Lagrangian solution scheme. The flow model is
designed to provide reasonable predictions of discharge and transport velocity
using a minimum of field data and calibration. The use of hydraulic geometry
... coefficients for area and top width is believed to contribute to the model's
predictive capability. The flow model is designed to support the BLTM
transport model documented by Jobson and Schoellhamer (1987), which simulated
the fate and movement of dissolved water-quality constituents through a network
of upland streams and rivers. It also should be useful for routine flow
