Hello, I am attempting to use WMS / HEC-RAS to determine the threshold discharge for overbank flow in a third-order watershed. This is part of a floodplain sediment storage study. I am running a series of flows through the model and trying to determine the minimum discharge required to initiate overbank flow. I am assessing the overbank threshold visually, using flood depth contours (generated within the _fd dataset). I assume the presence of any flood depth contour ≥0 represents overbank flow in my WMS model (see attached image 1). I also assume that stream reaches without contours prese
