September 27, 2005. DMIP 2 'Kick Off' teleconference for prospective
December 19, 2005. Announced delay in the radar precipitation data
availability for the Oklahoma basins. Data should be available by Jan 31,
April 1, 2003: Participant list updated to reflect those who actually
March 21,2002: 'How to Submit Simulations' Link added to main page.
Feb. 28,2002: About the StageIII Data --
A new document describing StageIII processing/history/error sources etc.
Feb. 21,2002: 209 missing hourly data files from the calibration and verification
periods are now available from the NEXRAD StageIII Data page.
Feb. 19, 2002: Quality controlled streamflow data are available.
"See Data --> Hourly Streamflow Data from USGS" link from the main DMIP
Jan. 25, 2002: Modeling Instructions Updated. Participants list updated.
Jan. 15, 2002: Up to now, the hourly streamflow data provided on
this web site did not correctly account for the fact that the USGS raw
data we obtained were recorded based on Daylight Savings Time in the summer.
This was discovered when we went back to the USGS to request additional
data. The data for the calibration period (through May, 1999) available
through this web site have been replaced with data in which the Daylight
Savings Time offset is correctly accounted for.
Jan. 15, 2002: 30-m DEM data for HUC 11070208 containing the areas
draining to the Elk River at Tiff City, MO Gage 07189000 now available.
Dec. 20, 2001: For the ABRFC StageIII data, we are aware that approximately
800 hours of archived data are missing for various days during the verification
period. We are working to obtain the missing data from other archives.
A notice will be posted to this page when the data become available.
Dec. 20, 2001: The specific basins that will be included in initial
simulation comparisons (due March 31, 2001) are described in the Modeling
Instructions. The Modeling Instructions have not changed; however, we had
initially planned to add the Cheat River Basin in West Virginia and the
Marais Des Cygnes in Kansas. Comparisons for these basins will not be included
in the initial phase (March 31, 2001 submissions) of DMIP because there
are significant concerns about precipitation biases in the existing NEXRAD
Dec. 18, 2001: Added link from Cross-section Data page to USGS Streamflow
Dec. 14, 2001: If you have registered and do not see your name on the "List

inconvenience this may have caused.
September 20, 2001: Update the list of participants
July 19, 2001: Instruction of using energy forcing field data is added
to the end of Modeling Instruction / A. General Comments, and onto the
Energy Forcing Fields page under Data page;
July 17, 2001: Data description is added at the bottom of Observed Energy
July 10, 2001: Pictures of cross section over Blue River are provided under
Data/Cross Section Data;
June 3, 2001: Headers of vegetation, greenness fraction data files are
May 17, 2001: Code to Read an XMRG File under the Data --> NEXRAD Stage
III Precipitation Data link has been modified. See explanation on NEXRAD
Stage III Data Page.
