Models and Data

We are committed to open-access data and methods, and provide links to data and models where appropriate here.

The Bayesian AMHG-Manning discharge estimation tool (BAM):
Post-doc alum Mark Hagemann maintains this open-source discharge estimation tool, complete with its own test data and use cases, on the git-hub repository. It is written in the R software language.

Test datasets for remotely sensed discharge algorithms:
I maintain a database of all those data used to develop and test remotely sensed discharge algorithms. This database is currently under construction and quality control for public release, but should soon be available.

UMass Hydrosystems Research Group Tools:
Dr. Casey Brown runs the hydrosystems group next door to Fluvial@UMass, and they provide a fantastic suite of water resource tools:

The Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC):
The GRDC mainatins the world’s most extensive list of river gauge data, and provides most free of charge. Their website is here:¬†

The national surveys of the US and Canada also maintain an archive of real-time hydrology data that are publically available. These are invaluable to any researcher.

IIASA’s Community Water Model (CWaTM):
The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis has produced an open source (Python) water model. I include a link to it here.
