Also known as
Model type Single
Model part of larger framework
Note on status model
Date note status model
Incorporated models or components:
Spatial dimensions 2D
Spatial extent Landscape-Scale
Model domain Coastal
One-line model description 2D marsh evolution model focused on pond dynamics
Extended model description 2D marsh evolution model focused on pond dynamics. Channels are static features. Tidal transport is not directly simulated. Includes the effect of man-made ditches (i.e., localized subsidence).

It has companion website with pre-loaded simulations to be used by end-users.
