Partrac Provides Consultancy Services To Wetland Restoration Project

Partrac was appointed by South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) as specialist consultant to provide advice and guidance on a robust and reliable method of interpreting and estimating one of the key sediment transport metrics - the surface critical entrainment threshold (CET) – arising from the use of benthic flumes. Using a sub set of field data supplied by SFWMD, Partrac developed a series of customised Matlab software scripts which provide a consistent methodology with which to analyse the data and derive the first CET point. The software scripts were packaged and delivered to SFWMD as a front end graphic user interface (GUI). ...Dec 29, 2014
