Abstract

A Hydrologic Information and Observing System (HIOS) is being designed and developed by a group of academic hydrologists and the San Diego SuperComputer Center. This is part of a research program supported by the National Science Foundation through the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc (CUAHSI). HIOS components include a hydrologic observations database, a digital watershed which synthesizes the hydrologic observations with GIS, remote sensing and weather and climate data, and a hydrologic analysis and visualization component to quantify fluxes and flows of water and constituents through the phases of the hydrologic cycle for a watershed region. Digital products from all HIOS components are stored in a Hydrologic Digital Library. The Neuse basin in North Carolina is being used as the illustrative watershed for development of HIOS.
