Flow and depth modeling during a two-week rainstorm for 15000 km of river in the Guadalupe and San Antonio River basin (Texas). Line width varies with flow rate, line color varies with flow depth. Modeling was conducted with the cross-disciplinary Simulation Program for River Networks (SPRINT), which applies methods developed for VLSI microprocessor design as a basis for addressing the challenges in dynamic modeling of large river basins.
