Dataset

Description

This is the full dataset that supports the findings of the following publication:

van de Vijsel, R.C., van Belzen, J., Bouma, T.J., van der Wal, D., Borsje, B.W., Temmerman, S., Cornacchia, L., Gourgue, O., van de Koppel, J. Vegetation controls on channel network complexity in coastal wetlands. Nature Communications 14, 7158 (2023). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-023-42731-3.

The goal of this publication is to study how vegetation affects tidal channel network formation in tidal marshes. This dataset therefore contains: i) model scripts and results of a new numerical model (SFERE) for vegetation effects on tidal network formation; 2) aerial photographs of real-world tidal channel networks for comparison with modelled networks; 3) digital terrain models of real-world tidal marsh networks for comparison with modelled networks. The README-file explains the exact contents of this dataset. The SFERE model itself can also be found via GitHub (https://github.com/RCvandeVijsel/SFERE) and Zenodo (https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.8428792).
