Abstract : The objectives of this research are to evaluate and document the accuracy and applicability of existing techniques for predicting hydraulic impacts in densely vegetated floodways, formulate new techniques as needed to accomplish these predictions, document the environmental benefits of riparian vegetation, and present guidance for selecting and maintaining riparian vegetation systems that optimize environmental benefits while minimizing hydraulic and stability impacts. This report addresses the first objective.
