HANOVER, N.H. (Aug. 31, 2017) -- "Advances in computational hydrology to support water resources planning and management" was the seminar subject shared by Dr. Martyn Clark, senior scientist in the Hydrometeorological Applications Program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, with a cross-section of researchers at the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory.
“Our scientists are collaborating with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Bureau of Reclamation and the University of Washington to build tools that will help to characterize uncertainties in climate impacts assessments and improve ensemble streamflow forecasts. Visiting the CRREL team this week is an essential opportunity to help maintain our scientific relationship and keep moving the program forward,” said Clark.
CRREL researchers in this arena are focused on using computational hydrology to better facilitate snowmelt and water resource prediction. Translating science into improved engineering practices is the cornerstone of how the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s laboratories’ are helping to make infrastructure more resilient to change.
