  • Grid of images showing modeling results

    Applications of HRRR ensembles for ensemble hydrologic prediction

    Collaborator: Bill Gallus, ISU

    Funded by NOAA CSTAR


  • An artifical drainage way

    Representing agricultural management processes in the National Water Model

    Collaborators: Fei Chen, Mike Barlage, Dave Gochis, Prasanth Valayamkunnath (NCAR) and Brian Cosgrove (NOAA/OWP)

    Funded by NOAA OAR


  • Image of a flooded interesection in Ames

    Several projects have focused on developing applications for remotely sensed data from satellites for operational streamflow prediction.  We have explored data such as snow water equivalent, snow covered area, potential evapotranspiration, and soil moisture for use in hydrologic models. 

    Collaborators: Angela Bowman, Tyler Madsen Ryan Spies, David Dziubanski, Logan Karsten (ISU), Terri Hogue, Kyle Knipper (CSM), Mohammad Barik (UCLA)

    Funding has come from NASA and the UCAR COMET program


  • Image of the user interface of the Community Water Model

    A simple agent-based model to support social capital building, storytelling, and collaborative action across a watershed

    Collaborators: Linda Shenk and Laura Merrick and ISU, and Story County Conservation

    Seed funding provided by ISU UTurn 


  • Boat anchored by the eroding shoreline of Napakiak, AK

    Support mitigation efforts of flooding and erosion issues faced by Alaska Native (AN) communities by converging scientific approaches with local knowledge

    Collaborators: Cassandra Rutherford (ISU), Cristina Poleacovschi (ISU), Cleo Wölfle Hazard (UW)

    Funded by NSF
