• Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Packagae - GRAIP is a set of tools for analyzing the impacts of roads on forested watersheds
  • There will be a GRAIP training session in May of 2015 in Boise, ID. Contact Tom Black 208-373-4363 or tblack@fs.fed.us
  • GRAIP can be used to identify: 1) surface erosion and sediment delivery from roads; 2) hydrologic connectivity; 3) stream crossing failure and diversion risk; 4) landslide and gully initiation risk.
  • Road Decommissioning: Picking the right road. GRAIP can be used to efficiently identify roads of highest restoration priority.
  • Legacy Roads and Trails Monitoring. Watershed studies characterize the risk associated with a road network in critical watersheds.
  • Measuring water and sediment discharge - researchers developed a new method of collecting and quantifying continuous discharge, along with coarse and fine grained sediment produced from forest roads.
