tran-SAS v1.0: a numerical model to compute catchment-scale hydrologic transport using StorAge Selection functions

Paolo Benettin and Enrico Bertuzzo

Model code and software

tran-SAS v1.0 P. Benettin and E. Bertuzzo

Short summary
Solutes introduced in the environment are transported by water to streams and lakes. The tran-SAS package includes a set of codes to model this process for entire watersheds by using the concept of water residence times, i.e. the time that water takes to move through the landscape. Results show that the model is implemented efficiently and it can be used to simulate solute transport in a number of different conditions.
