Applying microprocessor analysis methods to river network modelling

This paper describes the Simulation Program for River Networks (SPRINT) that is proposed as a tool for studying Continental River Dynamics (CRD), the solution of physics-based equations for large-scale river networks. Existing coupled hydrologic/hydraulic models have been unable to solve the full Saint-Venant equations for river networks larger than O(10) elements, but continental scales require 10 to 10 elements. The new model solves the full nonlinear Saint-Venant equations for one… CONTINUE READING
