• ICEWATER – INRA Constellation of
Experimental WATERsheds
ICEWATER Research Themes
• Snowmelt and runoff
– Linkages between snow accumulation, snowmelt, watershed
characteristics, runoff source areas, and water routing
– Water yield and flow regime and effects of land use and climate
change
• Groundwater/ surface water interactions
– Improved understanding of the dynamics of groundwater and
surface water interactions
– Improved management of water resources
• Human altered systems
– Effects of human alterations and water resources and
management infrastructure and policies on water quantity,
quality, and the hydrologic functioning of watersheds
Our Goal: An ICEWATER Information System
• Advances in water research are
critically dependent on the
assembly and integration of
water data
• Collect, organize and share
water data of interest to the
INRA water research community
ICEWATER Data
• Point Observations
– Stream gages
– Water quality
sampling
– Weather stations
– Soil moisture
– Snow monitoring
– Groundwater
level/quality
• Spatially Distributed
Data
– Land use/cover
– Terrain
– Hydrography
