New CI-WATER apps in development

To improve access to high-performance computing for water resource managers and researchers, CI-WATER is developing a suite of resources that will be released over the coming months.

The Tethys App Development platform, released earlier this year, is being joined by Tethys Cluster, ADHydro, HydroGate, and more.  Numerous apps and models are being created as well, such as the Canned GSSHA App, TMaps Tool and App, Observed Data App, and the ECMWF-RAPID Flood Prediction Tool.

The models and apps serve as use-cases for the development tools and as resources that water managers and researchers can use as-is or adapt to their own needs.
