GC23A:
Advances in Atmosphere and Land Modeling for Improved Understanding of the Hydrologic Cycle at the Watershed Scale II Posters


Session ID#: 9028

Session Description:
Understanding the water cycle at watershed scale is important for regional planning and development. Many recent developments in atmosphere and land models (and coupling strategies in Earth System Models) are relevant to hydrology at this scale. These include adding neglected representations of natural and human processes, improvements to existing treatments, better computational methods, increased model resolution and multi-resolution or scalable modeling frameworks. Emerging methods for uncertainty quantification, experimental design of simulations, and data analytics can also be used to better characterize and understand model behavior.

 

We invite contributions focused on; (1) Improvements to atmosphere and land models showing strong traceable impacts on key aspects of the water cycle (e.g., precipitation, soil moisture, snowpack, freshwater supply); (2) New modeling paradigms (e.g., tagging of water, coupled human-earth system modeling, ensemble simulations) to explore the hydrologic cycle; and (3) New data products or analysis techniques used to challenge or constrain model behavior.
