Herald Journal Friday, Sep. 29, 2017


Researchers seeking to how water moves through Earth’s environments and human homes may soon have access to more powerful tools for sharing their data, thanks to a USU-led initiative. Utah State University recently helped secure a $4 million grant from the National Science Foundation to continue building HydroShare, a worldwide data-sharing program for hydrological research. While a previous NSF grant allowed for HydroShare’s creation, David Tarboton, USU professor of civil and environmental engineering, said the latest $4 million will allow for “continuing development” of the web-based for hydrologists and share data. ... Tarboton said HydroShare makes it easy to publish data and models that substantiate hydrologic research. ... Jerad Bales, executive director of the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, said HydroShare has been used for several noteworthy projects. ... “HydroShare is providing a platform in which scientists from across the country, indeed globally, can collaborate on the development of new algorithms for the NWM,” Bales wrote in an email to The Herald Journal.
