• Operational Hydrology in Alaska: Current Techniques and Research Directions
    • Jessica Cherry (NOAA/WERC)
    • August 31, 2018

Abstract

This talk will cover the current workflow and techniques used by hydrologists at the National Weather Service's Alaska-Pacific River Forecast Center, as well as work being developed for research-to-operations. Research includes novel use of satellite data to detect flood extent and remote cameras to detect glacial dammed lake releases. Airborne and satellite data are leveraged during breakup, and inundation and hydraulic models are also under development. New work will assimilate snow data from satellite snow cover and synthesis products. Additionally, implementation of the National Water Model for Alaska will be discussed.
