SOBEK is a general software package for the integral simulation of processes in one dimension, i.e. in a river, an estuary, a canal or in a sewer network. It is a powerful instrument for flood forecasting, optimisation of drainage systems, control of irrigation systems, sewer overflow design, ground-water level control, river morphology, salt intrusion and surface water quality. It has been developed - and is being further developed - jointly with Dutch public institutes and private consultants.
SOBEK is equipped with a very robust numerical scheme that handles drying and flooding and sub- and super critical flows efficiently. Its map-based user interfaces for the product lines: River, Lowland and Urban, are accompanied by a powerful process database and editor to enable the formulation of water quality processes by the user. There is a flexible link to various GIS systems. SOBEK also allows for the integration of user-defined modules through the use of specific data exchange formats.

The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
