APEX Overland Flow Project - National Resource Inventory
Several points from the USDA-NRCS National Resource Inventory (NRI) were modeled with the farm scale APEX model. NRI points are inventoried over time to track land cover/land use changes that occur in the national landscape. Overland flow information is now collected on points that are adjacent to water bodies and this data was used in APEX to simulate the effect of application of best management practices. This internal pilot project was completed in order to identify modeling data gaps in the NRI.
