Sediment Materials Layer: How does Armoring Work?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 Is anyone familiar with how armoring is represented  in SRH-2D between two different sediment distributions? The Wiki help page hinted that the calculation is possible with the following statement but nothing more: 

"For gravel bed rivers the upper layer can represent a coarse surface armor and the deeper layer is the subsurface gradation"

 The armoring mechanism is an essential part to the river I am working with so I would be prefer to stay away from saying that it operates in a  "black box". Any input on where to look or how it may work would be great!
