January 2018 Water Resources IMPACT

Issue theme: The National Water Model
Guest Editors: Steve Kopp and Sandra Fox

What if we could forecast streamflow and floods as we forecast the weather? Know days or weeks in advance how much water will be in a stream? How many lives would be saved? How much property could be protected with advanced notice of impending flood water? Technological advancements made through collaborative efforts led by NOAA have produced the National Water Model.

This issue explores the vision, technology, and application of this valuable new hydrologic forecasting system. Input from the private sector, governmental agencies and academia are provided.
