  1. Dear SMS User: If I am modeling a tidal wetland, which of the following models is most appropriate to model the wetland site? 1- CMS-Flow 2- RMA2 What are the advantages and disadvantages of these two models with respect to tidal wetland modeling. Your support is highly appreciated. Thanks. Maminca
  2. I don't have matlab but thank you very much for the link. I really appreciate it.
  3. I have a noisy/sporadic tide boundary condition signal with many spikes. I want to smoothen the signal but there are lots of spikes and it will take me a very long time to smoothen if I am to do it manually. Any idea if there is a program out there to help me speed the smoothing process? Thanks.
  4. I am trying to model a wetland using SMS/RMA2. But instead of using a constant marsh porosity offset, I would like to use a marsh porosity offset based on marsh elevation. If you have modeled a site using this approach, I would be most grateful if you can show me how you did it. Thanks.
  5. No, I did not. I will try to do that now. Thanks for the information. I used 15 minutes (not 0.25 hrs) in both the XY series editor of the dynamic boundary and the time step size box. I am with the impression that since both are in the same format the result should be okay.
  6. The tide data was collected at 15 minutes time interval. All I did was copy the data from excel and pasted it on the XY series editor in the boundary condition drop-down menu and then give a time step of 15 in the "time step size" box. The output tide shows a smooth sinusoidal tide that is also 15 minutes times interval.
  7. Thank you very much for your support. I have difficulty in getting the model to run to completion when I used 0.25 hour time step but I soon as I change the time step to 15 minutes, the model runs to completion. Any idea why the model is behaving this way? Thank you very much.
  8. Dear RMA2 users: I am trying to figure out why I am getting different results when I used 0.25 hour and 15 minutes times step in the RMA2 Model Control window. I expect the results to be the same since 0.25 hour is the same as 15 munites. Any idea why I am seeing different results? Does RMA2 allows the time step to be input in muinutes? Thank you very much for your support.

    SMS - RMA2

    SMS users: Is it possible to have 2 or more tidal forcing boundaries in RMA2? I am trying to model a wetland site with more than 2 inlets that bring tide to the site. Please help. Thanks
