Title: Modeling vegetative filter performance with VFSMOD

Author: Helmers, Matthew J.; Eisenhauer, Dean E.; Dosskey, Michael G.; Franti, Thomas G.;

Date: 2002

Source: In: 2002 Mid-Central ASAE Meeting, St. Joseph, MO. 18 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The model VFSMOD was used to investigate the effect of varying watershed characteristics and buffer dimensions on the sediment trapping efficiency of vegetative filters. This investigation allows for a better understanding of how watershed characteristics, buffer dimensions, and storm characteristics impact the performance of vegetative filters. Using VFSMOD, relationships that estimate sediment trapping efficiency from the ratio of filter area and field area were developed for different sites. These relationships have been applied for field assessment of concentrated flow.

Keywords: Buffers, sediment trapping, surface runoff, watershed characteristics, buffer dimensions
