Modelling Rivers


Rivers are natural water courses. They have vital contributions to the social and economical welfare of societies living along their course. They provide continuous, usually dependable, flow and supply of water. Accordingly, centralised civilisation began emerging independently along number of river valleys; e.g. the Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, the Indus and the Yellow Rivers. Since then, mankind has been in continuous struggle to understand and live in harmony with this gift/force of nature. Modelling rivers is the modern way to understand their behaviour and is an essential tool to tackle several river problems.

Error with SedDia key

Dear guys,

I've a problem with the SedDia key
I read in the forum that I should write (for example):

SedDia = #diameter.d50# [m] Median sediment diameter (D50)

I generated the diameter.d50 file using Quickin to generate a *.dep file and I've chenged the file extension to *.d50 as you specified (it works when I generate different erosion thickness). Nevertheless I cannot load such a file and the error: "Error reading file...." appears.
(I tried without ## but no way)

Please, may you help me?

Thank you
