2016 CUAHSI Biennial Symposium Workshop

Group for attendees at the 2016 CUAHSI Biennial Symposium to access and share materials used in the workshop and to explore HydroShare collaboration Functionality

Join us from 1:30-3:30 on July 26, 2016 at the CUAHSI biennial symposium in Shepherdstown, WV to learn how CUAHSI’s data access and analysis tools can be incorporated into your teaching and research. During the first half the workshop, participants will learn how to discover and download data from the CUAHSI Water Data Center using CUAHSI’s web application HydroClient and how to analyze data using the WaterML R Package. Workshop participants will be asked to provide feedback on these tools, and CUAHSI staff will explain how such feedback is incorporated into the development process, as well as how one can become more involved in guiding development choices.

The second half of the workshop will introduce HydroShare. HydroShare is a platform for data publication and collaboration for users to share multiple hydrologic data types, analytical tools, and models. During this portion of the workshop, participants will learn how to use HydroShare to:
(1) Upload, share and publish science products in HydroShare and receive a citable digital object identifier (DOI). This helps fulfill NSF’s data management requirements.
(2) Use HydroShare for collaboration, sharing data and models with individual users or a group,
(3) Organize resources into collections in HydroShare,
(4) Use the HydroShare GIS app to visualize and create web maps using content in HydroShare,
(5) Use the CyberGIS TauDEM app to perform web based digital elevation model hydrologic terrain analysis.

Improving the theoretical underpinnings of hydrologic models - Sopron 2018

This group is for attendees at the workshop on "improving the theoretical underpinnings of hydrologic models" held in Sopron Hungary, April 15-18, 2018 to share workshop related resources and collaborate during and after the workshop.

This workshop is the second workshop organized in the framework of Improving the Theoretical Underpinnings of Hydrologic Models initiative, following the first successful workshop held in Bertinoro (Italy) in April 2016 to launch the community initiative. This follow-up workshop in Sopron (Hungary) is organised to consolidate progress since the last workshop, showcase new and innovative research and bring hydrologists together to accelerate progress on the development of a long-term strategy for a more systematic development and testing of hydrological models. More details on the workshop can be found in the first circular in the attachment.

The initiative is driven by five main research questions:

1. What are major theories that should guide hydrologic model development?

2. How can we represent small-scale processes that combine to produce large-scale fluxes (emergent behavior, spacetime scaling) in a consistent way?

3. How can we make use of optimality principles (or ecological and landscape evolution principles) to constrain model behavior? Are such principles useful when dealing with anthropogenic interactions?

4. How can we reflect the structure of the landscape in the structure of models?

5. How can we develop a rigorous approach to evaluate and select among competing theories and algorithms in presence of highly uncertain observation data?


This group was created to publish the results of research conducted as part of or affiliated with the iUTAH project.

Jordan Lake and Watershed

To share and archive data and scientific findings related to Jordan Lake, North Carolina, and its associated watersheds.

Jordan Lake is a reservoir west of Raleigh and south of Durham, NC, that was formed by the damming of the Haw River and New Hope River between 1973 and 1983. The reservoir receives inputs from the mixed agricultural, rural and urban Haw River watershed and the mostly urban Upper New Hope and Lower New Hope watersheds. Water flows out over the Jordan Lake Dam and thereafter forms the Cape Fear River. In 2016 the North Carolina General Assembly approved a bill to study water quality and nutrient management strategies in the reservoir under the auspices of the North Carolina Policy Collaboratory at UNC Chapel Hill. This HydroShare group was created as a repository for the documentation, data and associated findings that have come from this study, previous studies and future studies in the lake and its watershed. Complementary websites are: collaboratory.unc.edu/current-projects/legislative-studies/ and jordanlakeobservatory.unc.edu
