Water Resource Tools
- Hydrologically Sensitive Areas (HSA) Locator for Salmon Creek
- An interactive online tool to forecast spatially distributed saturation and runoff dynamics in the Finger Lakes region
- Online Saturation Prediction Tool for Owasco Lake Watershed
- This tool allows landowners and farmers to visualize what areas of their property are likely to be hydrologically active within the upcoming three days. These high-probability-wet areas have an increased risk of transporting contaminants to streams during precipitation or snow-melt events.
- Hydrologic Characterization Tool (HCT)
- Download the MatLab code for the chemistry transport algorithm running behind the web-based tool developed by Erin Brooks et al. at the University of Idaho.
R Packages We Like
- EcoHydRology R Package
- This package, developed by SWL members, provides a flexible foundation for scientists, engineers, and policy makers to base teaching exercises as well as for more applied use to model complex eco-hydrological interactions.
- SWATmodel R package
- Developed by SWL members, this package is a multi-OS implementation of the TAMU Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model. SWAT is a river basin or watershed scale model developed by Dr. Jeff Arnold for the USDA-ARS.
- waterData R package
- Developed by USGS, this package imports U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) daily hydrologic data from USGS web services and provides plotting, cleanup, and summary functions for streamflow data.
- Another USGS package, dataRetrieval pulls USGS gage information and water quality data (from EPA Storet). The package is not yet hosted on the CRAN server, but you can download it the USGS Github site
- Presentation on calculating detection limits for analytical instruments given by Paul Herendeen, Soil & Water Lab member.
- IUPAC and USEPA standards
Data Management Resources
Data Sharing and Storage
Instructions for Connecting to SWL Data Storage
- Bring a laptop or other wifi-capable device into B72
- Connect to the NASAttach wifi network
- On a Windows machine, connect to the server, '\\192.168.1.101' which should show up as 'DEEPSTORE'
- On a Mac, go to the finder and hit Command-k, then enter in '192.168.1.101'
- Open the 'lachat' or 'ic' folder as needed
- Copy the files that need, then disconnect from the wifi network
Data Management Plans
- DMP Tool : Tool for making Data Management Plans
- IEDA DMP Tool : Tool by IEDA (Integrated Earth Data Applications) for making DMPs
- Cornell's Mann Library provides a great library guide for biogeochemists. We sure do like the information on library services, workshops, RSS feeds, and copyright information.
