Water Resource Management

Watershed Modeling

CI-WATER researchers have developed advanced modeling capabilities so water analysts can better understand how water moves through the Intermountain West.

IMPACT:

The Watershed Modeling team has produced ADHydro, one of the most robust, high resolution, water modeling systems in the world. The large-scale simulation was developed specifically to enable water professionals to benefit from high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities without having to develop HPC expertise. HPC environments are necessary for ADHydro’s groundbreaking scale and higher resolution. It also includes all processes relevant to water, including precipitation, soil infiltration, evaporation and transpiration, human factors and more.

In addition to producing more accurate water forecasts for regional resource managers and researchers, CI-WATER’s models can be adapted for use in other regions. By making HPC resources more accessible, the models leverage technology infrastructure to give water resource managers and researchers new tools for attaining insight.
