Kyle Douglas Mankin presenting at Water Science Day at the New Mexico Water Science Center

Detailed Description

On Tuesday, April 18th 2017, the National Weather Service Albuquerque Weather Forecast Office and USGS New Mexico Water Science Center gathered about 20 climatologists, hydrologists and engineers from federal water agencies in the same room for a day dedicated to discussing water science projects and needs in the state.  The workshop was organized by the Weather Service and hosted by USGS at the Center, and included presentations from the Weather Service, USGS, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.  Participants discovered new NASA satellite data products and learned about the National Water Model from the Weather Service.  USGS hydrologists presented studies of watershed processes, wildfire hydrologic impacts, and water quality after the Gold King Mine spill.  Attendees heard about modeling to support dam operations from the Corps, and research to improve seasonal water supply forecasting and better understand extreme weather events from Reclamation.
