Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit, Californian CESU: The U.S. Geological Survey's is offering a cooperative-agreement opportunity to universities that have the ability to conduct modeling research for hydroecological questions that meet the objectives listed below. The objectives are to use the RHESSys (Regional HydroEcological Simulation System) model to simulate ecosystem processes and hydrology in five forested montane watersheds representing diverse conditions across the western U.S. (MacDonald Watershed, MT, Loch Vale Watershed, CO, Jemez Watershed, NM, Upper Merced watershed, CA, and Stehekin Watershed, WA). In 2009-2010 research will include the following: 1. Select sites and set up RHESSys simulations for comparison with empirical data analysis of climate induced mortality and dieback 2. Calibrate most recent version of RHESSys for Loch Vale watershed and Jemez Mountains New Mexico (semi-arid) site 3. Build on and revise previous RHESSys WMI simulations for 5 original forested watersheds (+ several additional sites with current RHESSys simulations) and develop a strategy for inter-site comparison of climate change responses 4. Develop a strategy for integrating succession and fire models with RHESSys
