Integrate Observations and Field Work in Support of Expanded Evaluation Data Testbeds in the Northeast
This project will build advanced cyberinfrastructure resources necessary to fuse a diverse array of existing and new heterogeneous data sources for supporting expanded evaluation data testbeds in the Northeast. The testbeds will be derived from the following three use-cases to be investigated by the UVM team: (1) Improving the representation of floodplain effects on hydraulic routing and flood inundation modeling and mapping (flood forecasting); (2) Coupling novel low cost spatially distributed nutrient sensors and National Water Model output to forecast nutrient loading and inform state implementation of EPA mandated nutrient reduction targets (nutrient load forecasting); and (3) Forecasting the incidence and duration of harmful algal blooms (HABs) at daily, weekly, and seasonal scales (HABs forecasting).
