HYDROLOGIC OBSERVATORIES PROJECTS

Work Group Action - 6 Month Horizon

During 2005, the HOG Work Group will develop a brief "white paper" stating the case for initiating one or more western-mountain HOs as soon as possible. Because more than half of the WG participants may be involved in development of highly competitive HO proposals to NSF, this task is not simple and-even afterwards-- there may be concerns as to the paper's objectivity and credibility. The group thus proposes to develop a draft for the CIRMOUNT Steering Committee to review. A final version will be sent to CUAHSI and NSF under CIRMOUNT's initiative.

Work Group Action - 2 year Horizon

We anticipate drawing members from the HOG and other interested scientists together to begin the longer range discussions as the CUAHSI science planning proceeds. One step in this development will be to develop and propose a hydrologic classification system for the West, a system that can be used to determine the adequacy of current and future observation networks and to prioritize proposed network designs.
