Talk Description:

The National Water Model went live last month and predicts continental water flow across the nation by using data from more than 8,000 U.S. Geological Survey gauges to simulate conditions for 2.7 million locations in the contiguous United States. Using the National Water Model, forecasts for the entire river network can be generated hourly. The launch of the National Water Model is a monumental advancement for the ability to make informed water-related decisions. CUAHSI has been involved in the implementation of the National Water Model by engaging graduate students and the academic research community through the National Water Center Innovators Program Summer Institute, which takes place at the National Water Center in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Additionally, highlights from last year’s Summer Institute will be presented, followed by information regarding the plans for next year’s Summer Institute and how interested community members can be involved.
