Launches Distributed Hydrologic
The NOAA National Weather Service announces the launch of the second phase of the Distributed Model Intercomparison Project (DMIP 2). The intent of DMIP 2 is to invite the academic community and other researchers to help guide the NOAA/NWS's distributed modeling research by participating in a comparison of distributed models applied to test data sets in two vastly different geographic regions.
DMIP 2 contains two scientific thrusts. First, continue the experiments in the DMIP 1 basins, capitalizing on nearly 4 more years of data. Additional experiments in these areas are designed as well to explore new issues not covered in DMIP 1. Second, DMIP 2 will contain experiments in two basins in the Sierra Nevada mountains, allowing researchers to test their models in areas of complex hydrology.
To participate in DMIP 2 complete the 'Registration' form, which can be found in the DMIP 2 web site
where more information about the project are available.
