OVERVIEW: Central to the science of hydrology is the localized nature of the medium through which water flows. The science demonstrator proposal seeks to integrate the top-down approach of the eWaterCycle project with the bottom-up approach of the SWITCH-ON one.

SCIENTIFIC OBJECTIVES:

  • combine lessons learned from SWITCH-On and eWaterCycle
  • make steps towards reproducible, reusable, open, data driven science in Hydrology
  • showcase a modern approach to large scale simulation-based science

FAIR DATA CHALLENGES

  • create FAIR versions of data required for running the hydrological models
  • FAIR software (source code and ready-to-run software)

IMPACT

  • facilitate model comparison studies, coupling of models and integration with different model components into larger community models
  • benefits for the water community when it comes to run coupled models to do operational predictions
