The Riparian Ecosystem Management Model (REMM) has been developed as a modeling tool that can help quantify the water quality benefits of riparian buffers undervarying site conditions. Processes simulated in REMM include: surface and subsurface hydrology; sediment transport and deposition; carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus transport, removal and cycling; and vegetation growth. Simulations are performed on a daily basis and can be continued in excess of 100 years.
