DescriptionThe Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model, originally developed for hillslope and small watershed applications, simulates complex interactive processes influencing erosion. Recent incorporations to the model have improved the subsurface hydrology components for forest applications. Incorporation of channel routing has made the WEPP model well suited for large watersheds. However, the model is still limited in modeling forested watersheds where groundwater baseflow is substantial, and where snow accumulation and melt dominate winter hydrology.
