Short summary
Quantifying wood fluxes in rivers would improve our understanding of the key processes in river ecology and morphology. In this work, we introduce new software for the automatic detection of wood pieces in rivers. The results show 93.5 % and 86.5 % accuracy for piece number and volume, respectively.
