The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season was among the busiest on record, producing 18 tropical depressions, 18 tropical storms, 10 hurricanes that occurred in succession, and 23 separate landfalls by Atlantic named storms. Six of the ten hurricanes further strengthened into major hurricanes. Three of these were Harvey (TX-LA-MS), Irma (FL-GA-NC), and Maria (Puerto Rico and other Caribbean islands). These three were so devastating, and so close to each other in time, that the National Science Foundation (NSF) urged the research community to apply for NSF RAPID grants to study these hurricanes and their impacts, to better understand how these occurred. A team led by David Tarboton, David Maidment, Jerad Bales, and Ray Idaszak received funds  to build a storm and flood data archive for Harvey and Irma, to be housed on HydroShare, and managed by CUAHSI. The project period is from October 2017 to September 2018. This presentation summarizes work to date (April 2018) on the Harvey part of the collection.
The downloadable datasets are accessed via HydroShare. Some large datasets are hosted on RENCI iRODS and the Univ of Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) facilities.
