WRENSS Water Yield Post Processor

The FVS-WRENSS water yield post-processor predicts changes in water yield using vegetative and site data from Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) projections and user defined precipitation patterns. The hydrologic methods are based on the U.S. Forest Service’s Water Resources Evaluation of Non-Point Silvicultural Sources (WRENSS) Procedural Handbook. An overview of the FVS-WRENSS post-processor was followed by a demonstration showing the effect of simulated forest management actions on water yield in the western United States. This webinar was presented on April 14, 2015.
