DeltaRCM is a parcel-based cellular flux routing and sediment transport model for the formation of river deltas, which belongs to the broad category of rule-based exploratory models. It has the ability to resolve emergent channel behaviors including channel bifurcation, avulsion and migration. Sediment transport distinguishes two types of sediment: sand and mud, which have different transport and deposition/erosion rules. Stratigraphy is recorded as the sand fraction in layers.
Best usage of DeltaRCM is the investigation of autogenic processes in response to external forcings.
Modify water/sediment discharge (as number of parcels), grid size and spacing, basin geometry, mud/sand ratio, etc
- PNG files of eta, stage, depth
- grids of eta, stage, depth (as netCDF4)
- grids of sand fraction in stratigraphy (as netCDF4)
