An official website of the United States government
The .gov means it’s official.
Federal government websites always use a .gov or .mil domain. Before sharing sensitive information online, make sure you’re on a .gov or .mil site by inspecting your browser’s address (or “location”) bar.
This site is also protected by an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate that’s been signed by the U.S. government. The https:// means all transmitted data is encrypted — in other words, any information or browsing history that you provide is transmitted securely.
The Computer Section, a support unit for the total research program of the NSL, provides a wide range of expertise in the area of computers, programming, and data collection and processing. Current projects include:
As members of an inter-agency team for development of AnnAGNPS, a continuous simulation version of AGNPS, a GIS based program was developed for calculating flow paths, watershed boundaries, and channel attributes. Additionally, an input editor is near completion that will assist users in creating input data sets.
A telemetry system provides near real-time access to a variety of hydrologic and meteorological data collected from fifteen sites in Goodwin Creek Watershed. Processed data are provided to Lab scientists and cooperators covering a wide range of research applications.
In support of the NSL research program, our Local Area Network, engineering work stations, individual PC's, Internet connection, and a wide variety of other PC hardware and software are maintained and supported.
