H072:
Hyper-Resolution Hydrologic Modeling: Progress and Challenges





Session ID#: 26938

Session Description:
Growing water stakeholder demands, the availability of accurate, high-resolution terrain and remote sensing data, and rapidly  increasing computational capabilities continue to enable process-based hydrologic modeling at ‘hyper-resolution’ scales, on the order of 10-50m.  For example, flash flood prediction and surface-groundwater coupling in urbanized areas or in steep-terrain requires high spatial and temporal resolution modeling.  Operational forecasting systems, such as the NOAA National Water Model among others, now are developing methods for operational hyper-resolution hydrologic prediction applications.  As such there is now a need to demonstrate and rigorously assess the fidelity of hyper-resolution hydrologic models and flood inundation prediction capabilities.  Papers are solicited that cover a spectrum of topics such as: the trade-off between modeling resolution, accuracy, and computational requirements; real-time flood forecasting/mapping applications; hydrologic/hydraulic model complexity; terrain feature description; model initialization and lateral boundary forcing specification. Contributions discussing novel model evaluation methodologies are also welcome.
