1 NWS Eastern Region Hydrologic Services Division George McKillop Collaborative Opportunities

2 Outline Formal Grant Programs Collaborative Organizations CHPS Collaborative Research Model – O2R2O

3 Funding Opportunities CSTAR COMET OHD – AHPS Innovation Theme Team NOAA Grants (Climate, Sea Grant) Congressional Directed Earmarks Other agencies NSF EPA NASA USGS

4 Collaborative Organizations NOAA Cooperative Institutes NOAA Regional Collaboration Teams (RECO) NART & SECART Sub-regional groups – NOAA in the Carolinas; in New England River Basin Commissions Customer Advisory Board (CAB) Federal “Water” Partners (USGS, USACE) Association of Floodplain Management (ASFPM) Universities Council On Water Resources (UCOWR)

5 CHPS CHPS? Collaboration Opportunity? Community Hydrologic Prediction System Water Resources Forecasting Program: “CHPS will engage NOAA and the external (federal and non-federal) research community to advance water prediction science …. and will augment NOAA’s capabilities to produce higher resolution water quantity and quality forecasts and information.” - Gary Carter NYCDEP Operations Support Tool (OST) OST will enable operators to more accurately predict storage levels to better manage movement of water through the reservoir system, and ultimately, to 9 million New Yorkers. "We look forward to collaboration with NYCDEP. The NWS helps New York manage its regional water resources effectively by providing high-quality hydrologic data and forecasts. Implementation of OST holds great promise to strengthen this partnership.” - Jack Hayes

6 Collaborative Research Model: O2R2O O2R: Operations to Research Planning: Survey Operational Forecasters What are the most challenging forecast scenarios? Where can research benefit operations? Communication – what new capabilities do researchers bring? Development: Formulate hypotheses, science questions Involvement: Collaborative interactions during research

7 Collaborative Research Model: O2R2O R2O: Research to Operations Step 1 – Discover & Share (only the beginning) A paper is not the end product: rather it is only the beginning Step 2 – Demonstrate added value (so what? show me!) Forecasters won’t use discovery until added value has been demonstrated Step 3 – Operational Implementation (practical?) User friendly, reliable, & efficient accessibility is a must. Step 4 – Mastery (by all, not just a few) Training & QC ensuring the effective utilization of discovery by the entire forecast staff is required. Step 5 – Periodical review (a necessity) Periodical review for the staff at least seasonal necessity.
