NOAA's National Water Model (NWM) represents the next generation of river forecasting by NOAA. The NWM is based on the National Hydrography Dataset at a scale of 1:100,000 and is being developed to provide continuous modeled river flows for all 2 million plus river reaches in the model.

Abstract: 

NOAA's National Water Model (NWM) represents the next generation of river forecasting by NOAA. The NWM is based on the National Hydrography Dataset at a scale of 1:100,000 and is being developed to provide continuous modeled river flows for all 2 million plus river reaches in the model. Brian and David will discuss the NWM, processes being developed to implement the model, and short and long-term plans. A NWM pilot being developed in New England for flash flood forecasting will also be presented.
