Project Description

Our team has developed a proof of concept project (1) Fully Open Sourced to assist in (2) Decision Support, Data Sharing, and Information Communication Tools. The objective with this proposal is to framework to implement a Same-time monitoring network to produce an endless number of advantages for purpose of water accountability. With this baseline network design discussed, collaborating agencies could plug-and-play working theories for optimal Water Resources Management practices with an ability to validate accuracy to a fine degree. In our proof of concept, we evaluation Shasta Dam station approximately 10 miles of river length north of the Keswick Reservoir Station. In order to compare the discrepancies between stations, we used the following two dataset sources: 􀀀 California Data Exchange Center (CDEC) – US Bureau of Reclamation, Department of Water Resources, and Water Quality 􀀀 National Water Quality Monitoring Council (NWQMC)– USGS NWIS and BioData, EPA STORET, and USDA-ARS STEWARDS through a single search interface Below is an outline of the technical report used for our standalone document submission. We have also attached the requested Power-point, and Working Excel Spreadsheet that has an output less powerful, but relatively similar to R-Studio.
