Interagency Workshop Report on Integrated Hydro-Terrestrial Modeling Now Available

A report that outlines opportunities for coordinating water-related data and modeling capabilities across multiple federal agencies has been released by the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Energy, and U.S. Geological Survey. The “Integrated Hydro-Terrestrial Modeling: Development of a National Capability” report describes activities from a September 2019 workshop that brought together representatives of water-related agencies and their scientific partners (including university researchers) to initiate a vision for a national integrated hydro-terrestrial modeling and data infrastructure. The report focuses on modeling associated with three priority water challenges: (1) hypoxia, nutrient loading, and harmful algal blooms; (2) water availability in the western United States; and (3) water-related hazards.
