Metadata

Also known as
Model type Single
Model part of larger framework
Incorporated models or components:
Spatial dimensions 1D, 2D
Spatial extent Reach-Scale
Model domain Terrestrial
One-line model description AeoLiS is a process-based model for simulating aeolian sediment transport in situations where supply-limiting factors are important, like in coastal environments.
Extended model description AeoLiS is a process-based model for simulating aeolian sediment transport in situations where supply-limiting factors are important, like in coastal environments. Supply-limitations currently supported are soil moisture contents, sediment sorting and armouring, bed slope effects, air humidity and roughness elements.
Keywords:

beach armoring, sediment sorting, aeolian sediment transport,
