The Model of Riverine PHysical form and Eco-geomorphic Dynamics (MoRPHED) computes sediment transport and channel evolution in gravel-bed rivers. Initially developed for braided rivers, MoRPHED simplifies sediment transport by mobilizing particles downstream according to a user-specified path length distribution . In effect, MoRPHED simplifies the numerical simulation of geomorphic processes, allowing longer simulations at better resolution.
Checking out the most recent branch of MoRPHED and building the source will provide a working version of the model. MoRPHED has been tested and built in Windows 7 and 8, but is developed in Qt and building on Linux should be possible with a few tweaks. See the included readme file for specific build instructions. MoRPHED integrates with the Delft3D hydraulic model , which can be built from source on your machine by visiting the Delft Website.
MoRPHED was originally conceptualized and is written by Alan Kasprak, Konrad Hafen, and Joe Wheaton. Funding for the development of the model was provided by the National Science Foundation (Award #7086465). Extensive development assistance was provided by Philip Bailey (North Arrow Research), Matt Nahorniak (South Fork Research), James Brasington (Queen Mary University of London), and James Hensleigh, Sara Bangen, and Eric Wall (all of Utah State University).
