HH. Applications and Benefits of Integrated Hydrologic Modeling

This is a new and exciting course for 2017! Integrated hydrologic models can simulate both surface water and ground water flow and the dynamic interactions between them. Over the past decade, Tampa Bay Water and the Southwest Florida Water Management District have developed and calibrated an integrated model which covers 4,000 sq mi of the Tampa Bay region. This model has been used to develop minimum flows for rivers and springs, evaluate the influence of uncertainty in streamflow and aquifer water levels due to rainfall on minimum flows for rivers, evaluate the influence of global circulation model output for rainfall and potential evapotranspiration on future streamflow and aquifer water levels, optimize the spatial and temporal distribution of well pumping for environmental recovery, evaluate delivery system reliability for a large public water supply utility, and support applications for Consumptive Use Permits. Given the ongoing water management challenges across the State of Florida, course participants will benefit from learning about the broad range of issues to which integrated modeling can be applied. Bring your questions for this expert panel!
