Description

NOAA's Colorado Basin River Forecast Center (CBRFC) generates streamflow forecasts across time scales from hours to years throughout the Colorado Basin and Utah. Forecasts are used by water managers, emergency managers, and other stakeholders with interests in water supply and streamflow levels. The hydrologic modeling system in use at the CBRFC is calibrated based on historical data and incorporates observations and forecasts of precipitation, temperature, and freezing levels to generate forecasts at nearly 500 streamflow sites within the Colorado Basin and Utah. The CBRFC is in the process of migrating to a new, modern software infrastructure known as the Community Hydrologic Prediction System (CHPS). CHPS is built on standard software packages and protocols, and open data modeling standards. It will enable CBRFC to share models and datasets with partners much more easily. CHPS will allow for more rapid transition of new innovate analysis and forecast techniques into the operational forecast environment. CHPS will also dramatically improve data visualization capabilities at the RFC. Examples of CHPS capabilities this will be shown in this poster presentation.
