Individual Based Modeling
Individual-based models are designed to understand how stream and river salmonid populations respond to habitat alteration, including altered flow, temperature, and turbidity regimes and changes in channel morphology.
Relevant to rivers and streams with adequate salmonid species and habitat information to populate model
Species mortality by life stage, habitat attributes, temperature over a range of discharges
Salmonid species population response to stream flow alteration
Linkage to Other Models
PHABSIM, Stream Temperature modeling, species mortality, stream habitat conditions, stream hydrology
Level of Effort
Extensive. Requires information related to individual species survival to changes in the physical environment.
