MoRE is a simplified tool for modelling sediment and phosphorus inputs in rivers and reservoirs. All formulas and parameters can be adjusted without any programming knowledge. This results in a very good global applicability.

The complexity of the MoRE version was reduced to facilitate the modelling of the parameters sediment and phosphorus from basins for diffuse sources. These are the two parameters that are particularly important for the operation of reservoirs and the development of protective measures. In particular, the integration of remote sensing data has been simplified in order to facilitate the transfer or use in other basins. The tool allows a transparent adjustment of the underlying formulas and input variables. In this way, it reduces the hurdles for use by non-scientific staff. By modelling over several years, trends in sediment and phosphorus input can be identified so that a response can be taken. In addition, scenarios for possible effects through measures in the basin or changes (climate and land use change) can be calculated.
