INTEGRATED MONITORING AND SIMULATION OF HYDROLOGIC COMPONENTS AND SYSTEMS IN AGRICULTURAL LANDSCAPES
Great Plains Agroclimate and Natural Resources Research Unit
Project Number: 3070-13000-011-11
Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Apr 01, 2011
End Date: Mar 31, 2016
To rehabilitate unit source research watersheds for the ARS-USDA Grazinglands Research Laboratory (GRL); to organize and archive all existing data from said watersheds; collect and analyze water/sediment samples from GRL research sites; and assist in the design/identification and installation of research equipment for the GRL’s Long-term Agro-ecosystem Research (LTAR) sites.
Skills regarding field measurement and data management of components of the hydrologic cycle using weirs, flumes, automated water samplers, and other electronic instruments and data loggers will be used to address water resources research. Water samples collected from various research sites will be analyzed in accordance with research needs.
