who is cuahsi
Who is CUAHSI?
  • A consortium of 88 research universities and 1 affiliate member
  • Incorporated June, 2001 as a non-profit corporation in Washington, DC
what does cuahsi do
What does CUAHSI do?
  • Serve hydrologic science community
    • Develop community goals
    • Identify needs
    • Advise NSF
  • Operate community programs
    • Manage infrastructure
    • Develop program ideas
hydroview
HydroView
  • Initial program
  • Mutually supportive elements
    • Observatories
    • Instrumentation
    • Informatics
    • Synthesis
current status
Current Status
  • Synthesis: SoI under review; proposal to be submitted Fall, 2004.
  • Informatics: Pilot program begun with $2.5M, 2-year grant
  • Instrumentation: Proposal about to be submitted for 3-yr pilot
  • Observatories: Pilot 5-station network to be started in 2005
today s briefing
Today’s Briefing
  • Focus on HO’s
  • Design concepts
  • Next steps in implementation
  • Management questions
design concepts for ho s
Design Concepts for HO’s
  • Community Resource
    • Core data available to all through common interface
    • Equal access to site
    • Support for remote investigators
  • Sufficiently Large
    • Explore all interfaces, include LS/Atm
    • Contribute to hydrologic improvement in GCM’s
  • National-scale Network
    • Comparable data across observatories
    • Test hypotheses in different hydrologic settings
science topics
Science Topics
  • Linking Hydrologic and Biogeochemical Cycles
  • Hydrologic Extremes
  • Sustainability of Water Resources
  • Transport of Chemical and Biological Contaminants
  • Hydrologic Influence on Ecosystem Functions
cross cutting themes
Cross-cutting Themes
  • Scaling
  • Forcing, Feedbacks, and Coupling
  • Predictions and Limits-to-Prediction
hydrologic characterization
Hydrologic Characterization

Three fundamental properties

  • Fluxes between “stores”
  • Residence time within “stores”
  • Flowpaths among “stores”

Stores include surface, subsurface and atmosphere.

core data
Core Data
  • Provides estimates of fundamental characteristics
  • Common to multiple hypotheses
  • Immediately available to community
ho development
HO Development
  • Local perspective
    • Design data necessary to address chosen hypotheses
    • Designate “core” data and “first-publication” data
  • Network perspective
    • Provides common data model
    • Determines metadata standards
    • Influences core data collection
observatory design team
Observatory Design Team
  • Determines best way to “characterize” site
  • Delineates “core data” boundary
  • Develops workplan for data collection
  • HO Standing Committee reviews plan
ho professional staff
HO Professional Staff
  • Implements workplan developed by observatory design team (ODT)
  • Populates common data model
  • Provides site management to coordinate research by ODT and others
  • Collects non-core data as resources permit
evaluation criteria 1
Evaluation Criteria—1
  • Hypotheses Posed
    • Meet at least 3 of 5 topics
    • Interdisciplinary
    • Innovative
  • Design
    • Provides characteristics across range of scales, including largest
    • Combination of nested, intensive basins with broader surveys
evaluation criteria 2
Evaluation Criteria—2
  • Leveraging of Existing Data
    • Intensive studies (LTER, USGS, ARS, USFS)
    • Monitoring data sets (Federal, state and local)
  • Institutional support
    • State/Local support
    • Stakeholder organizations
  • Educational/Outreach Opportunities
two perspectives
Two Perspectives
  • Local Design Team
    • Choose hypotheses
    • Rewarded by pursuing “their” science
    • Just one research team—do not control site
  • Broader Community
    • Site must attract non-local scientists
    • Broad range of disciplines
next steps
Next Steps
  • Aug. 1, 2004: 10-page prospectus
  • Aug. 23, 2004: National Workshop
  • Fall, 2004: Regional Workshops
  • Jan, 2005: NSF Program Announcement
  • Apr, 2005: Proposals Due
  • Sep/Oct 2005: Award 2 HO’s
  • 2008: Competition for 3rd HO
national workshop
National Workshop
  • Choose 5 “example” basins for hypothetical HO Network from submitted prospectuses
  • Day 1
    • AM: HIS, Neuse, HMF presentations
    • PM: Poster session and election
  • Day 2: Breakout groups by basin (core data composition) and by science topic (cross-observatory hypothesis testing)
  • Selection of basins has no meaning beyond workshop
regional workshops
Regional Workshops
  • Held Sep – Dec, 2004
  • CUAHSI creates 5 hydrologic regions
  • Open to everyone (including non-hydrologists!)
  • Objectives
    • Build community support
    • Learn about potential sites in region
  • Support level: $20K/wkshp
ho management
HO Management
  • “2 PI” model
    • Ensures ODT does not control site
    • Divides community responsibility from individual science endeavor
    • Site director?
  • 1 PI Model
    • Integrates ODT and Site Director
    • Integral science model
