Two standalone tools are available to post-process RDF files. These tools can be found on the RiverWare web site. RdfToExcel will write the contents of an RDF file to an Excel workbook, and RdfAnnualizer will take an RDF file with a timestep of less than a 1 Year and aggregate its data to create an RDF file with a 1 Year timestep. Help documentation is packaged with the tools.
