Project Title: Hydrologic modeling of river flows in ungauged basins
Project Description:

Water resource magers need to estimate how much surface water flows in rivers of the world. Maging rivers in places where insufficient data are collected is a vast problem, especially in the developing world. We are developing tools to predict streamflows in places with limited data. The project involves GIS, use of large, global datasets, and hydrologic modeling.

Student Responsibilities: Students should have the strong desire to study water resources and interest in GIS. Experience using Matlab and GIS is helpful, but not necessary.
Student Requirements: Students will run GIS-based and Matlab-based models and alyze data. Students will learn how to calibrate large global precipitation datasets, how to calibrate and validate hydrological rainfall-runoff models, and how such prediction tools can be applied to solve real-world water problems.
Type of Project: Individual
Possibility of Payment: Yes
Number of Students: 2
