Accelerating watershed science through a community-driven software ecosystem
The water resources that are critically important for energy production, human use, agriculture, and ecosystem health are under increasing pressure from growing demand, land-use change, and Earth system change. Those stresses on our water supply are largely transmitted through the Nation’s watersheds.
The Environmental System Science (ESS) program within the U.S. Department of Energy is advancing a robust, predictive understanding of how watersheds function and respond to perturbations as integrated hydrobiogeochemical systems. By tightly integrating observations, experiments, and modeling, SBR advances systems-level understanding of how watersheds function and translates that understanding into advanced science-based models of watershed systems.
The outcomes of the IDEAS-Watersheds project will significantly enhance our capabilities and scientific productivity in computational watershed science, thus advancing ESS toward its overarching goal of predictive understanding of how watershed hydrobiogeochemical processes function.
IDEAS-Watershed builds on the foundational work in IDEAS-Classic, supported through ESS and ASCR.
The ParFlow Short Course titled Integrated Simulation Of Watershed Systems Using ParFlow was held June 2-3, 2022 at the ModFlow and More Conference.
The first ATS short course (September 1-2, 2021) was a great success, thanks to all those who presented demos and those who participated. Being online we were able to attract over 50 participants from countries in Asia, Europe and North America.
