The Dynamic Wave Operational Model (DWOPER) is used to forecast river stages on the Lower Columbia River. DWOPER was developed by the National Weather Service's Hydrologic Research Laboratory in the early 1970's and has been implemented where backwater effects and mild bottom slopes are most troublesome for normal hydrological routing methods. This paper examined the DWOPER computer model results during an October 1986 low flow period and January 1987 higher flow period.
