OFFICE OF SURFACE WATER TECHNICAL MEMORANDUM NUMBER 90.07

Subject:   PUBLICATIONS--Transmittal of Report, "Twelve Selected
                         Computer Stream Sedimentation Models
                         Developed in the United States"

The subject report, edited by Dr. Shou-shan Fan, Chairman of the
Interagency Ad Hoc Sedimentation Work Group, was prepared under
the auspices of the Subcommittee on Sedimentation of the
Interagency Advisory Committee on Water Data.  A limited number of
additional copies are available directly from Dr. Fan at the
address given on the inside front cover of the report or from the
Office of Water Data Coordination, U.S. Geological Survey,
417 National Center, Reston, Virginia, 22092.

The work group found about 48 models that have been developed in
the United States.  Of these they selected 12 on which to report.
There are six federally owned and six privately owned models
described.

The report provides summaries and flow charts of the models as
well as more detailed discussions of the capabilities.  This
report should prove to be a valuable reference to those attempting
to model stream-sediment interaction, or to those evaluating model
results.
