Catchment Hydrology Explorer for Water Stewards (CatchX Platform), NERC Innovations grant, 200K, 18 months.PI, Mark Trigg UAF Water Risk, Civ Eng Co-I, Professor Suraje Dessai, SEE
This project aims to address the severe lack of water related information in data scarce contexts through the development of a web based, global scope, catchment hydrological information tool that not only allows non-expert users access to hydrological information, but also provides meaningful, locally relevant, visualisation of these data for decision making.
