1 Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop (CPASW) The William and Ida Friday Center Chapel Hill, NC March 6, 2008 Integrated Water Resource Products for Drought in North Carolina Mark S. Brooks and Ryan P. Boyles State Climate Office of North Carolina NC State University

2 Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop Chapel Hill, NC - March 6, Who Are We? The State Climate Office is where University researchers, extension scientists, government agencies (state and federal) come together to work on North Carolina weather and climate related issues. Applied group Housed at NCSU

4 Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop Chapel Hill, NC - March 6, The Need for Water Resource Data Economically important Socially important Monitor conditions Policy Decision support

5 Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop Chapel Hill, NC - March 6, Water Resource Data in NC Many different data sources Many different parameters Many different formats No one place to get it all (until now)

6 Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop Chapel Hill, NC - March 6, and so was born, CRONOS H 2 O One digital database, one format, one interface Multiple sources: –USGS –NC DWR –USACE –Duke Energy –TVA –NWS COOP (precip)

7 Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop Chapel Hill, NC - March 6, Lets put this into context CRONOS –Climate Retrieval and Observations Network of the Southeast –Digital database of surface weather –Eleven weather networks, over 3700 stations –Launched in 2003

9 Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop Chapel Hill, NC - March 6, CRONOS H 2 O CRONOS + water data –Streamflow –Reservoir levels –Groundwater levels –Precipitation –Percentiles

10 Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop Chapel Hill, NC - March 6, CRONOS H 2 O Interface Designed with Joe Q. Public in mind –while serving needs of advanced users Integrated with CRONOS (weather)
