EEMS10.1.4 Out Now

The new EFDC_Explorer Modeling System is now available; now the full capability version of EE10. Also included are EE8.5, EFDC+ and CVLGrid1.1 in one package. EE10 marks a major upgrade to the GUI and provides users with a start-of-the-art tool pre- and post-post processor for hydrodynamic, sediment transport and WQ modeling. Enhancements include vertical masks,…

Ocean Sciences Meeting 2020

DSI was at the Ocean Sciences Meeting from February 16th-21st 2020 in San Diego, California. This is the flagship conference for the ocean sciences and the larger ocean-connected community. DSI demonstrated our modeling tools, discussed your modeling problems, and provided advice and recommendations.

EEMS Training In Edmonds

EEMS training was conducted from Feb 5th – 7th on lake hydrodynamics, estuary hydrodynamics using ocean boundaries and salinity density circulation, and vegetation simulation. On the last day, participants worked with DSI engineers to cover specific issues that attendees not bought to the training. The next training is scheduled for September 22-23, 2020. Register here.

Calgary Water Quality Model Development

Matrix Solutions and DSI are partnering to develop the Bow River (City’s Reach) Water Quality Model Development using EFDC for the City of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The EFDC model (2D-3D) will help to understand the temporal, spatial water quality and environmental risks with better resolution and will seamlessly integrate into AEP’s model of the Bow…

American Water Resources Association Presentation

Paul Craig, President of DSI, gave a presentation on Habitat Modeling at a dinner meeting for the Washington Section. Mr Craig demonstrated tools for supporting efforts to mitigate the impact of human development on fish habitat through enhancements to the physical habitat such as changes in substrate type and flow patterns.

McClelland Lake Wetland Complex Study

DSI is supporting Suncor and Hatfield to develop an EFDC model that is integrated with a HydroGeoSphere ground water model of the McClelland Lake Wetland Complex in Alberta, Canada. The goal is to develop a surface water model to represent the transport and fate of WQ constituents along the fen and into the lake.
