SHETRAN is a model for water flow,
transport in river catchments.
SHETRAN is a
finite-difference model in which the physics-based governing partial
differential equations for flow and transport are solved on a
SHETRAN is a physically-based, spatially-distributed (PBSD) modelling
plan area of the catchment in SHETRAN is usually in the range of one to a few thousand
square kilometers and the horizontal depth of the subsurface is usually less
There are two download versions of SHETRAN.
A version with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) in a Windows environment and
the Standard version which uses text based files.
Using the GUI version in a Windows environment a basic
catchment can be set-up rapidly using data straight from a GIS (e.g. ArcView).
Both versions are for a maximum of a 50 by 50 grid. If you require a
simulation with a bigger size or any modifications to the code, you will need
