DescriptionAn integrated hydrologic modeling/watershed assessment tool is being developed to aid in determining the susceptibility of semiarid landscapes to natural and human-induced changes across a range of scales. Watershed processes are by definition spatially distributed and are highly variable through time, and this approach is designed to account for their spatial and temporal variability. This tool will integrate geographical information systems and distributed hydrologic models in a user-friendly graphical environment. The hydrologic models work under a watershed analysis framework to simulate the influences of vegetation and land use characteristics on watershed response and will accommodate scientific advances in the quantification of watershed assessment via hydrologic process modeling.
