DescriptionDEBRIS is a menu-driven, interactive computer program written in FORTRAN 77 for recording and platting survey data and for computing hydraulic variables and depths of scour and fill. It was developed for use with the USDA Forest Service's Data General computer system, with the AOS/VS operating system. By using menus, the operator does not need to know any programming language. The five routines are: entering data, plotting, scour and fill, hydraulic variables, and computing x-y coordinates.
