HydroGEN Project Awarded $5M To Model National Water Resources Using Machine Learning

UArizona News

Dr. Laura Condon, UArizona assistant professor of hydrology and atmospheric sciences lead a team received a $5M grant from NSF to use machine learning to build models of the nation's watershed systems that can be used to forecast future conditions. Building a platform that can handle the model and the large data transfers needed for this approach is a significant challenge. So, Dr. Condon and her team have partnered with CyVerse, a UArizona-led NSF-funded organization dedicated to providing life scientists with computational infrastructure to handle and analyze large datasets.
