Add Dataset to Cart 151.02 MB Stream Restoration Toolbox Authors: Alessandro Cantelli, Wesley Lauer, Jeff Marr, Brandon McElroy, Gary Parker The Stream Restoration Toolbox consists of current basic research cast into the form of tools that can be used by practitioners. The toolbox contains models, code, websites, and small applications that are useful for applied stream restoration Tools are free to download and use. The Toolbox is not limited to NCED but is open to all contributors. Tools are listed in alphabetical order.

Tool title: Bank Stabilization Diagnosis
Tool purpose: Determination as to whether or not bank stabilization should be a part of a river restoration scheme
Primary tool author: J. Wesley Lauer
File(s): BankStabilizationDiagnosisTool(ppt)

Tool title: The Dam Remover: Mark I
Tool purpose: Models the morphodynamics of the channel that incises reservoir sediments following dam removal.
Primary tool author: Alessandro Cantelli
File(s): DamRemoverMARK1(ppt)

Tool title: The Gravel River Bankfull Channel Estimator
Tool purpose: This tool consists of a set of regression relations for predicting bankfull geometry of mobile-bed single-thread gravel bed streams in terms of bankfull discharge and bed surface median grain size.
Primary tool author: Gary Parker
File(s): BankfullChannelEstimator_v2(ppt) & GravelBankfullData(xls)

Tool title: The Gravel River Bankfull Discharge Estimator
Tool purpose: This tool consists of an equation to estimate bankfull discharge in an undisturbed (reference) reach of a single-thread, mobile-bed gravel-bed stream from measured channel characteristics.
Primary tool author: Gary Parker
File(s): BankfullDischargeEstimator_v2(ppt) & GravelBankfullData(xls)

Tool title: Planform Statistics
Tool purpose: Tools to assist in calculating planform statistics (width, curvature, channel migration rate).
Primary tool author: J. Wesley Lauer
File(s): PlanformStatisticsTools(ppt)

Tool title: Sand Bed Calculator
Tool purpose: Calculator to estimate bed geometry and bedload transport from sand bed surveys.
Primary tool author: Brandon McElroy
File(s): SandBedCalc(ppt)

Ebook: 1D Sediment Transport Morphodynamics with applications to: Rivers and Turbidity Currents
Tool Purpose: This ebook is an amazing resource containing fundamental and applied lectures on rivers and turbidity currents as well as many other geomorphic processes. The main lectures are in PowerPoint. These lectures are linked to Excel files, most of which serve as graphical user interfaces for code in Visual Basic for Applications. Extended explanation is given in Word. Phenomena are illustrated with mpeg video clips.
Author: Dr. Gary Parker, University of Illinois, Urbana
Status: In development.

Tool title: Spawning Habitat Integrated Rehabilitation Approach (SHIRA)
Tool purpose: This website provides a comprehensive introduction to the issues and concepts surrounding spawning habitat rehabilitation on regulated rivers. The website includes description of the SHIRA framework, case studies, and reference list.
Primary tool author: Professer Greg Pasternack, University of California-Davis

Tool title: The Spawning Gravel Refresher
Tool purpose: Allows design of controlled flood releases from dams combined with gravel feeding to restore over-coarsened and immobile former gravel spawning grounds.
Primary tool author: Gary Parker
Status: In development.

Tool title: The Threshold Channel Calculator
Tool purpose: Design of a threshold channel in an e.g., urban setting, for which the sediment supply has been cut off.
Primary tool author: Peter Wilcock
Status: In development.
