Near Real-time Experiments

Primary Contacts

Dennis Lettenmaier Professor, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Dennis is the lead PI of the project and the overall supervisor and coordinator of the project team activities.
Qiuhong Tang, Research Associate, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Qiuhong is the project's lead researcher on Remote Sensing ET estimation and MODIS snow data assimilation activities, will be helping to implement hydrologic models for the target basins, and maintains the project's webpage. He is currently the contact point for questions on Remote Sensing ET estimation, snow data assimilation and nowcast implementation. Qiuhong's doctoral research focused on a Distributed Biosphere-Hydrological Model System for Continental Scale River Basins which is a useful tool to improve water resources management in large river basins with an advanced biosphere-hydrological model.
Andrew Wood, Research Asst. Professor, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Andy, a Co-Investigator of the project, developed the project's technical research activities and associated tasks. He is the creator of the westwide hydrologic forecast system on which the project is based, is a contact point for questions on climate and hydrology model forecasts, and is supervising the implementation of westwide system techniques for the project objectives.

Other UW Collaborators

Anne C. Steinemann, Professor, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Anne, a Co-Investigator of the project, is the developer and supervisor of the user interactions component of the project, focusing on the communication of forecast products to users.
Eric Rosenberg, Graduate Student, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Eric is focusing on the forecast communication and user interactions component of the project, and is a contact point for information about fo recast products for the two target river basins.
