Location: Watershed Physical Processes Research
Project Number: 6060-13000-023-27-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 1, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2017
Develop geospatial (geographic information system (GIS) and Remote Sensing) and database technology to identify and characterize different sources of waters and sediments at laboratory, field, and watershed scales.
Tasks to be performed on a ongoing basis during the term of this agreement: a) Develop and utilize remote sensing technology and geographic information system (GIS) databases to determine the onset and evolution of erosion sources, particularly for gullies on upland areas, to allow simulations with watershed models. b) Investigate remote sensing methods for characterization of climate, sheet and rill, gullies, and conservation practices for assessment with the Annualized Agricultural Non-Point Source Pollution Model (AnnAGNPS) watershed model in reducing water and sediment loads.
