Granato, G.E., 2019, InterpretSELDM version 1.0 The Stochastic Empirical Loading and Dilution Model (SELDM) output interpreter: U.S. Geological Survey software release,


The InterpretSELDM program is a graphical post processor designed to facilitate analysis and presentation of stormwater modeling results from the Stochastic Empirical Loading and Dilution Model (SELDM), which is a stormwater model developed by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration. SELDM simulates flows, concentrations, and loads in stormflows from upstream basins, the highway, best management practice outfalls, and in the receiving water downstream of a highway. SELDM is designed to transform complex scientific data into meaningful information about (1) the risk of adverse effects from stormwater runoff on receiving waters, (2) the potential need for mitigation measures, and (3) the potential [...]

The purpose of this computer program is to facilitate interpretation of output from the Stochastic Empirical Loading and Dilution Model (SELDM) version 1.0.3, by data mining output files within a project that the user selects to retrieve data and make graphs from the analyses within that project. This program helps the user: find the percentage of simulated values that exceed a criterion; the value that exceeds an input percentage; obtain average constituent yields, and make graphs to display SELDM output values.


The InterpretSELDM program was prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), which are agencies of the Federal government.
