Slide 1

project goal 1 characterizing the active zone
Project Goal (1): Characterizing the Active Zone
  • “ACTIVE ZONE” Hypothesis:
    • Local watershed control volume
    • 3 partitions
      • 1) Land surf to atm
      • 2) Transition zone (near surface processes in canopy, root zone, etc).
      • 3) Regolith from land surface to subsurface boundary layer (SBL)
    • SBL analogous to atm
      • Effective depth (major unknown)
      • Feels surface water/energy fluxes
      • Operates at relevant time-scales
project goal 2 unification of modeling digital data and experimentation
Project Goal (2): Unification of Modeling, Digital Data, and Experimentation
  • Observatory Network Design Needs:
    • Must confront the tradeoffs between economic constraints, performance objectives, and scientific knowledge gaps
    • Gap analysis requires the unification of
      • Multi-scale predictive modeling
      • Digital data resources
      • Innovative data collection strategies
  • We are seeking to unify several existing efforts
    • PIHM
    • SRB Geodatabase
    • Real-Time Hydrologic Monitoring Network (RTH_Net)
major research components
Major Research Components
  • Penn State Integrated Hydrologic Model
    • Finite volume, irregular mesh simulation
    • Fully coupled process formulation
    • Developed for platform independence and open source
  • SRB Geodatabase
    • Finalized ESRI Geodatabase for entire basin
    • Soils, DEM, land cover, vegetation, etc.
    • Will provide FTP access in the near term
  • Real-Time Hydrologic Monitoring Network (RTH_Net)
    • Exploring real-time “Active Zone” experimentation
    • Developing real-time multi-state water cycle observations
