Nearshore Processes

This group caters to researchers, scientists, and students working in the area of Nearshore Processes.

The nearshore region is the transition zone from land to the open ocean. This region spans drastically different dynamical regimes with varying roles of waves, wind, tides, buoyancy, and morphology. The vulnerability of the coast to sea level rise, extreme storms, and anthropogenic influences is a major societal concern. This group will share observational and model results, and latest work (presentations/posters) related to advancement in the understanding of nearshore processes.

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.

CUAHSI 2017 Hurricane Data Community

To share data from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria that impacted the US and Caribbean region in 2017.

Following Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria that had significant impacts to parts of the US and islands in the Caribbean there has been much activity to assemble, document and archive data from these events. This data is intended to support research to improve our understanding of and capability to prepare for and respond to such extreme events in the future. This group has been created as a community within HydroShare for users interested in these data archives. This is open for anyone to join. Anyone who joins can share data (HydroShare resources) with this group. Sharing resources with this group makes them accessible to group members and includes them on list of resources shared with this group. This group serves as an overarching organizational collection, listing and discovery vehicle for any community contributed data on any aspect of these Hurricanes.

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?
