WaterNet CNRFC Demonstration Project and American Geophysical Union Meetings, December 2008

December 11-12, 2008 I met with engineers at the USACE Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) in Davis to discuss their modeling framework and efforts supporting the CNRFC and the CHPS-FEWS work with the National Weather Service and Office of Hydrologic Development.  Bill Charley and Fauwaz Hambali met to discuss the HEC modeling developments for FEWS working with Delftares.  On December 12, I visited the Joint Operations Center where I met with California Department of Water Resources, US Bureau of Reclamation, and California-Nevada River Forecast Center experts to disucss end-user needs and progress of the Hydrometeorological Testbed (HMT) in the American River Basin.









USBR, Michael Tansey and CDWR, Maury Roos and Francis Chung discuss potential NASA WaterNet applications for the Central Valley Project (left); WFO Service Hydrologists at the Sacramento WFO and CNRFC demonstrate work stations.



The AGU 2008 Fall meeting provided a number of very interesting contacts for WaterNet’s water cycle community of practice (WC-CoP) and opportunities to expand the WaterNet researcher – decision-maker network.  During the next several weeks I shall follow-up with many of these contacts.  We presented a poster entitled “Improved Analyses and Forecasts of S


nowpack, Runoff, and Drought through Remote Sensing and Land Surface Modeling in Southeastern Europe: WaterNet Applications” and WaterNet hosted the WaterCycle TownHall Meeting where Lucien Cox, NASA Headquarters met with the WaterNet team and interested Community of Practice decision-makers and researchers. 







Dr. Michael Lenhing, Swiss Federal Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF) presents poster on “Preferrential Deposition of Pecipitation in Alpine Terrain”, Dave Matthews presenting WaterNet Poster.
