Through 20 years of development DRIFT has achieved a high degree of functionality enabling it to be adapted for a wide range of uses in water resource development. However, for any model to remain current and applicable for use in new situations it is important the software is regularly updated to continuously improve its functionality.
Releasing DRIFT for wider up-take and application will provide an opportunity for further refinement and development. For this reason we welcome input and suggestions from DRIFT users to allow continuous improvement and capability of the software.
