“Urban Watershed Evolution” [Team: Jay Banner (project lead – JSG), Ashley Matheny (JSG), Mary Jo Kirisits (CAEE), Kasey Faust (CAEE), Lynn Katz (CAEE), Ngoc Tran (Math), Shalene Jha (Integrative Biology), Bryan Black (Univ of Arizona), Christopher Herringto (City of Austin), Amy Belaire (The Nature Conservancy), Kate Catterall (Design and Creative Technology), Alyson Beaton (Design and Creative Technology), Darrel Tremaine (ESI), and Lakin Beal (JSG).
“Development of a Framework of Data Interpolation, Scaling, and Homogenization (DISH) for Mapping Natural Resources in Texas” [Team: Alex Sun (project lead – BEG), Michael Young (BEG), Suzanne Pierce (TACC), Justin Thompson (BEG), Bridget Scanlon (BEG), and Daniel Hardesty-Lewis (TACC)]
“µP-STREAM: Micro-controller Platform Sending Telemetry Real-time for Earth’s Adaptive Models” [Team: Je'aime Powell (project lead – TACC), Kelly Pierce (TACC), and Tim Keitt (Department of Integrative Biology)]
The Urban Watershed Evolution has been working on understanding the multi-decadal impacts of urbanization on urban watersheds to better forecast how they will develop in 21st-century Texas. Kasey Faust’s students will be presenting on their findings. The DISH project has been working on a toolset to understand the spatiotemporal dynamics of water availability and other natural resources overlaid with socioeconomic data. Justin Thompston will present on their finds. Je’aime Powell’s µP-STREAM project has been deploying environmental sensors at the Stengl Biological Station that can stream data in real time to the computational resources of the Texas Advanced Computing Center.
