This project aims to make national hydrologic simulations more accessible and to facilitate interaction with large computationally intensive hydrologic models that produce massive dataset. The HydroFrame team is building tools so that users can rapidly subset, run, and share hydrologic models of any watershed in the U.S. using cloud computing. The project also has interactive models and lesson plans. In particular, the project utilizes the CUAHSI CONUS Model Subsetter, which can be accessed here. The development of tools and lesson plans for education also are being developed by the team.
