Voting Instructions - (CLOSED)

Please vote today here  for the papers we'll read on Tuesday. I'll summarize the results at the end of today (Friday) and send out the paper.

The choices for the first one (a paper that looks at the sensitivity of HEC-RAS model outputs to different inputs) were:
  • Casas A, Benito G, Thorndycraft VR and Rico M. 2006. The topographic data source of digital terrain models as a key element in the accuracy of hydraulic flood modelling. Earth Surface Processes and Landforms. 31(4): 444-456. DOI: 10.1002/esp.1278.
  • Cook A and Merwade V. 2009. Effect of topographic data, geometric configuration and modeling approach on flood inundation mapping. Journal of Hydrology. 377(1-2): 131-142. DOI: 10.1016/j.jhydrol.2009.08.015.
  • Pappenberger F, Beven K, Horritt M and Blazkova S. 2005. Uncertainty in the calibration of effective roughness parameters in HEC-RAS using inundation and downstream level observations. Journal of Hydrology. 302(1-4): 46-69. DOI: 10.1016/j.jhydrol.2004.06.036.

The choices for the second one (a paper that we want to make an assessment of the suitability of their application of HEC-RAS to the questions at hand) were:
  • Curtis KE, Renshaw CE, Magilligan FJ and Dade WB. 2010. Temporal and spatial scales of geomorphic adjustments to reduced competency following flow regulation in bedload-dominated systems. Geomorphology. 118(1-2): 105-117. DOI: 10.1016/j.geomorph.2009.12.012.
  • Mouton AM, Schneider M, Depestele J, Goethals PLM and De Pauw N. 2007. Fish habitat modelling as a tool for river management. Ecological Engineering. 29(3): 305-315. DOI: 10.1016/j.ecoleng.2006.11.002.  
  • Sholtes JS and Doyle MW. 2011. Effect of Channel Restoration on Flood Wave Attenuation. Journal of Hydraulic Engineering. 137(2): 196-208. DOI: 10.1061/(ASCE)HY.1943-7900.0000294.
