SDR Model: riparian forest effect?
Dear InVEST users and developers,
I am using the SDR model to predict sedimentation in a Brazillian watershed and to estimate the sediment avoided by a riparian forest in a reservoir inside this watershed. However, it seems the results underestimate the benefit of trapping sediments by a riparian forest, considering it as a regular forest elsewhere.
I suppose that a simple change in the riparian area CP parameter will not be enough as much of the acutal effect of the riparian is related to trap the sediment generated eleswhere.
I would like to know if is there a way to more accurately model the influence of a riparian forest.
Thanks in advance!
