The restoration, preservation, and enhancement of fish habitat is a topic of great concern in the Western United States. Efforts to mitigate the impact of human development on fish habitat often focus on enhancements to the physical habitat through changes in substrate type, flow patterns, and temperature either directly or indirectly. This presentation will demonstrate the application of a physical habitat simulation for fish passage and habitat analysis using the EFDC_Explorer Modeling System (EEMS) framework. The EEMS framework supports simulation of the physical environment using the Environmental Fluid Dynamics Code (EFDC), and analysis of physical habitat through a suite of post-processing analysis tools. Together, these tools provide a powerful and efficient method for assessing the effect of man-made features that may impact aquatic species habitat.
