System requirements: PC compatible; C++ for program and MS WORD 7.0 for user's manual. DOS Formatted disk for UNIX Systems. Large Woody Debris (LWD) and its accumulation as jams or dams and impact upon the channel environment are topics receiving increasing research interest over the past 5 to 10 years. Aims of this research is to collect a large, representative data set concerning the reach scale and basin-wide influences of LWD on channel morphology. The software and user manual, available on the disk, contain a probability based model for predicting build-up of debris at pridge piers.
