DSI provides for the study and analysis of morphology and sediment transport for a diverse range of projects. These include hydropower dams, coastal studies for port and harbor authorities, and complex river and delta system studies of both clean and contaminated sediment transport. DSI utilizes a range of 1D, 2D and 3D modeling tools for this purpose, including the EFDC+/EFDC_Explorer modeling system, which has been developed to simulate a wide range of sediment transport scenarios.

At DSI we provide a broad range of services for Morphological Studies including:

  • River and coastal geomorphologic studies
  • Bed shear stresses analyses
  • Hydrodynamic modeling
  • Field data collection and analysis
  • Data processing
