  • CI-WATER: What is a Model?

    This video identifies different types of models, including physical models of physical objects, physical models of physical processes and abstract models of physical processes. Additionally, it explains the role of abstract, mathematical models in the CI-WATER project, which brings together hydrological computer modeling and high-capacity cyberinfrastructure to improve our ability to forecast water availability in the Intermountain West. Featuring Dr. Court Strong, Dr. Fred Ogden and Adel Abdallah. CI-WATER is a large-scale collaboration between Utah State University, the University of Utah, Brigham Young University, the University of Wyoming, EPSCoR Utah and EPSCoR Wyoming. CI-WATER is funded through EPS – 1135482 and EPS – 1135483.
