RHESSys Hackathon!

A collaborative effort including software engineers, scientists, and researchers to improve RHESSys functionality and usability. Participants in the hackathon included researchers from RENCI (Renaissance Computing Institute), the Institute for the Environment at UNC Chapel Hill, WSSI collaborators from the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) at the University of Maryland and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and of course the chief RHESSys architect Dr. Naomi Tague.photo (1)

Japan-US Watershed Hydrology and Forest Biogeochemistry: Comparing Data, Theory and Models

Japan-US Watershed Hydrology and Forest Biogeochemistry

Tague contributes to this international working group – looking at how RHESSys might be useful for synthesizing spatial dense measurements of forest thinning effects on nitrogen cycling and water – and thinking about how emerging isotopic data from streams and groundwater wells can be used to improve RHESSys representation of subsurface flowpaths

Groundwater dynamics and snow – empirical analysis of historic streamflow trends

This new publication uses empirical streamflow data from watersheds across the western US to build on our earlier working using RHESSys that demonstrated how spatial differences in underlying geology can play an important role in influencing how streamflow responds to changes in climate
