BRAT is the Beaver Restoration Assessment Tool. The model is a stream network model, that is geared towards building appropriate expectation management with respect to the dam building activities of beaver. The model is intended to help resource managers plan and prioritize where beaver may build dams naturally, what the capacity of the streamscape is to support their dam buliding activity, predict where the potential for human-beaver conflicts may arise, and highlight where and where-not beaver make sense as a conservation or restoration tool.
Versions 1.0 through 2.3 consisted of a set of manual ArcGIS geoprocessing steps and workflow, and the model itself was run through a series of Matlab scripts (provided here). Full documentation on how to implement the geoprocessing and use this source code is available at the BRAT website.
