Exploring the Use of Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) in Southwest Alberta

GRAIP can predict which road segments and drainage features lead to greater risks of landslides, stream crossing plugging and reduced hydrologic connectivity.

This project will use field data from southwest Alberta in a tool called Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP). The tool can be used to help prioritize areas for restoration, monitor road treatments, and develop road treatment alternatives.

When calibrated with local data, GRAIP will output an inventory of roads, drainage, and streams that predict which road segments and drainage features lead to greater risks of landslides, stream crossing plugging and reduced hydrologic connectivity.

GRAIP was created by the US Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station and Utah State University.
