A discussion on Phase I NetMap Default Models

Phase I IP modeling and mapping was implemented using NetMap, a software package developed by Earth Systems Institute for the specific purpose of modeling watershed processes in a GIS setting.

For Phase I IP Modeling, we implemented the following models. Links at the bullets are to an Excel table with the curves for each parameter (first link) and to the text file with parameter values actually read by NetMap (second link):

This model is an unpublished BLM model, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Department of Interior (2008).

The Chum Salmon Intrinsic Potential model was created by Tom Miewald,

These models were implemented on a fish bearing network defined only by a gradient cutoff of 0.20 or 20% rise / run.
