A short-term meteorological database has been developed for the Cold Land Processes Experiment (CLPX). This database includes meteorological observations from stations designed and deployed exclusively for CLPX as well as observations available from other sources located in the small regional study area (SRSA) in north-central Colorado. The measured weather(More)
Correct knowledge of soil moisture is important for improving the prediction of coupled land surface atmosphere interactions. This is due to the control that soil moisture exerts on the latent and sensible heat flux transfer between the land surface and atmosphere. Because of this strong dependence on moisture availability, improved atmospheric prediction(More)
EFFECTS OF SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF STORMWATER MANAGEMENT INFRASTRUCTURE ON POLLUTANT REMOVAL EFFICIENCIES AT THE WATERSHED SCALE: A GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS APPROACH Stephanie Sparkman, M.S. George Mason University, 2015 Thesis Director: Dr. Paul Houser Although urban areas comprise only 7% of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, stormwater runoff from these(More)
A global Land Information System (LIS; http://lis.gsfc.nasa.gov) has been developed that is capable of modeling land-atmosphere interactions at spatial resolutions down to 1km. LIS consists of an ensemble of land surface models (e.g., CLM, Noah, VIC) run offline using satellite-based precipitation, radiation and surface parameters, in addition to(More)
