The modelling of natural river systems is both an art and a technical journey. Ebbwater Consulting believes that a good hydraulic model requires a solid foundation in the physical processes of water – you’ve got to get your feet wet.
Ebbwater also believes that there is no single tool that is right for all hydraulic problems. The first step in the development of any hydraulic model is discussion. Ebbwater prides itself on making tools that are useful for the client, which first requires a solid understanding of what the tool will be used for and who will be using the tool. Ebbwater probes its clients to answer these questions before beginning model development.
Ebbwater also believes that any numerical model has to be robust – not only does it have to run, it has to make sense. Ebbwater strives to build technically solid models based on years of experience, meticulous quality control, and detailed documentation.
