Abstract: Dam removals and modifications are increasing areas of focus for US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Districts from several standpoints: design of restoration projects and quantifying potential environmental impacts (Operations, Continuing Authorities Projects, Support for Others, and General Investigations) and the evaluation of permit applications (Regulatory). Physical response of the reservoir bed and downstream channel boundary as well as multiple parameters of sediment dynamics are topics of central interest in dam removals and modifications. Knowledge of sediment behavior and geomorphic response of the system to the removal or modification alternatives is central to the decision process. DAM_Explorer is a graphically rich, Windows-based program for analysis and presentation of three-dimensional physical responses. The Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program (EMRRP), a GI-funded technology transfer program administered by the Engineer Research and Development Center’s Environmental Laboratory, supported the initial development of DAM_Explorer.
