Pub Abstract: 

The Loch Vale watershed project is a long-term research and monitoring program located in Rocky Mountain National Park that addresses watershed-scale ecosystem processes, particularly as they respond to atmospheric deposition and climate variability. Measurements of precipitation depth, precipitation chemistry, discharge, and surface-water quality are made within the watershed and elsewhere in Rocky Mountain National Park. As data collected for the program are used by resource managers, scientists, policy makers, and students, it is important that all data collected in Loch Vale watershed meet high standards of quality...

Abstract: 

The Climate Science Center funded project “Assessment of Water Availability and Associated Drivers for Historic and Future Conditions in the South Central Climate Science Center Region” requires a way to customize and distribute model runs. These models can be used to assess the accuracy of climate drivers (precipitation and temperature) from different sources and the hydrologic effect of these drivers on monthly water balance model (MWBM) outputs.

The Fort Collins Science Center Information Science team has developed a web-based portal (Modeling of Watershed Systems or MOWS) in support of this need. MOWS provides a user interface for selecting MWBM inputs and returning MWBM outputs for climate data sets available through the USGS GeoData Portal (GDP). The data sets include station data, historical and future climate data derived from dynamically downscaling General Circulation Model (GCM) simulations, and historical and future climate data derived from statistically downscaled GCM simulations. The MWBM outputs include potential evapotranspiration (PET), actual evapotranspiration (AET), snow water equivalent (SWE), soil moisture storage (SMS), streamflow (STRM), average temperature (TAVE), and precipitation (PPT).
