What's new in WMS 8.5

The GSSHA model is a 2D watershed model that includes 1D hydraulic modeling, groundwater modeling, and other advanced watershed modeling components.

Updated Interfaces

Renumbering has been improved in the MODRAT interface and several bugs have been fixed. Several new features and bug fixes have been added to the GSSHA interface. First, the storm and tile drain modeling capability of GSSHA has been improved by adding the capability to add multiple pipes in a "superlink", which represents a network of pipes in GSSHA. The algorithm for determining embankments has also been reworked to make the algorithm more efficient and more accurate. The GSSHA tutorials have also been updated and improved to include the latest enhancements in the GSSHA code. Also, GSSHA itself has been reworked to make the program more stable.
