I came across:

Floodplain and Meandering Research (http://erode.evsc.virginia.edu/floodplain.htm)

and

Drainage Basin Simulation Studies (http://erode.evsc.virginia.edu/drainage.htm)

They might be of interest to someone who 1) knows what to do with data like this and 2) can understand some programming :)

I ran the provided windows binaries, and got output files, but in a raw format which I have no idea what to do with, or how even to view them graphically...

I particularly liked the sample of the meandering river in a floodplain:

Thanks Rob, that is very interesting. I think Monks might like to have a peek at this too.

Wow! RobA, what a find! Flood plains and valley basin ridges. I see there also current research being done on crater impacts too, which I planning to use to build 3D planets with. Hopefully these crater software will become available soon. It will help me a long way. Some interesting results so far.

Oooh yes, I like this kind of thing. Check this out:

Last I heard Joe Wheaton had moved from ooCAESAR to MORPHED- or it had undergone a name change. This is about as close to using scientific simulation software that ME-DEM has been. I'm sure if you had the time/ patience/ project manpower, you could turn this to amazing effect on your terrain.
