    Presentation Transcript
    1. InVEST Sediment Retention Model Estimate the amount of watershet erosion and sedimentation and its economic impact on hydropower production and water quality • Two Steps: • Biophysical • Valuation

    2. Sediment Retention Model Biophysical Inputs Land Use/Land Cover Vegetation retention, land practice and management Streams Used to determine where sediment flows to Watershed Areas Main and sub for point of interest and water quality analysis Slope Digital elevation model, slope threshold Erosivity Based on intensity and kinetic energy of rainfall Reservoir Features Dead volume, lifetime of reservoir, allowed load Erodibility Soil detachment and transport potential due to rainfall

    3. Sediment Retention Model Biophysical Outputs Potential Soil loss Calculated from USLE per sub-watershed Sediment Exported Calculated per sub-watershed Used in valuation Sediment Retained Calculated per sub-watershed

    4. Sediment Retention Model Valuation Inputs Valuation Outputs Watershed Areas Main and sub for point of interest and water quality analysis Value of Sediment Removal for Dredging Sediment Exported From biophysical analysis Value of Sediment Removal for Water Quality Sediment Retained From biophysical analysis Sediment Valuation Reservoir dredging costs

    5. Sediment retention model How Does it Work? • Use the universal soil loss equation to determine potential soil loss • A connectivity model determines how much soil reaches the stream • Different land cover and practice can retain sediment! • Details in the user’s guide • Follow me to http://www.naturalcapitalproject.org • Bookmark the user’s guide

    6. Sediment retention model Universal Soil Loss Equation

    7. Sediment retention model Connectivity Model Corn Forest Corn Forest Stream

    8. Results • Amount of sediment that reaches streams • Economic impact of sedimentation • Dredging • Water Quality

    9. Future Features • Account for dams in removal of downstream sediment • It’ll run faster • Look for this in InVEST 2.3 in the near future

    10. Sediment retention model Do it! • Run the Soil Loss tool first, then Valuation • I’ll do a dry run • Trainers will help you • Your neighbor will help you • Okay to be rowdy
