Zhang, Zhonglong.; Johnson, Billy E.; Greimann, Blair.
The purpose of this Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program (EMRRP) technical note (TN) is to document the riparian vegetation simulation module (RVSM) developed and integrated with the Hydrologic Engineering Center-River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) (http://www.hec.usace.army.mil/software/hec-ras/). The RVSM simulates spatially distributed seed dispersal, establishment, growth, and removal in response to dynamic hydraulic conditions. The HEC-RAS-RVSM is designed to model the interactions between flow and riparian vegetation in the floodplain and support the river ecosystem management and restoration.
