Abstract

This resource provides MATLAB scripts and functions to compute topographic shading along a river centerline. This model was applied to the Colorado River in Grand Canyon in order to provide spatiotemporal shading in the dynamic river temperature model described in "Water temperature controls for regulated canyon-bound rivers" (doi: 10.1029/2020WR027566).

readme.txt

This folder contains Matlab functions and output data used for determining dynamic shading in Grand Canyon

Folder: SolarRadiationModule
-- Matlab functions used for calculating elevation angles and shade timing.
    -- Functions are generic and can be used with any set of latitutude and longitude coordinates 
    and a digital elevation model (DEM) 
-- See Example folder for application in Glen Canyon 
-- See comments in code for additional details

Folder: GlenCanyon_to_Diamond
-- Project forlder used for determining shade timing in Grand Canyon
    -- Contains a Matlab script for determining elevation angles and shade times (GlenCanyon_2_DiamondCreek_incidence_withDiffuse.m)
    -- contains a second script for partitioning shortwave radiation into individual components and determining the radiation scaling
        factors used in the time series provider of HydroCouple (GlenCanyon_2_Diamond_write_individual_shortwave_erbs.m)
    -- Output data are stored in .csv and .mat file types 
    -- See comments in code for additional details

Note: Additional Matlab toolboxes are used to run this model. 
MOD-WET Matlab toolbox: https://margulis-group.github.io/teaching/ (used for solar geometry calculations)
GeographicLib toolbox: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/50605-geographiclib (used for converting Lat/Lon coordinates to UTM coordinates)
