RIVMOD is a one-dimensional hydrodynamic model available from but not supported by the USEPA Center for Exposure Assessment Modeling, Athens, GA. RIVMOD is a numerical, hydrodynamic and sediment transport RIVerine MODel that describes the longitudinal distributions of flows and sediment concentrations in a one-dimensional waterbody through time. The hydrodynamic sub-model can be run independently of the sediment transport sub-model where only flow computations are required. However, the hydrodynamic sub-model must be run along with the sediment transport submodel where variations in cross-sectional geometry due to scour, deposition and transport of sediment are to be predicted. The primary criteria for selecting this model is the need to describe spatially varying flows and/or sediments in a waterbody through time. The model is applicable to rivers, streams, tidal estuaries, reservoirs and other waterbodies where the one-dimensional assumptions is appropriate.
