WRF-Hydro
A.k.a. WRF-Hydro Modeling System
The WRF-Hydro® Modeling System, an open-source community model, is used for a range of projects, including flash flood prediction, regional hydroclimate impacts assessment, seasonal forecasting of water resources, and land-atmosphere coupling studies. It produces forecasts and analyses for all major terrestrial water-cycle components: Precipitation, Streamflow, Soil moisture, Snowpack, Flooding, Groundwater. McAllister, Molly

Availability

Redirect download.png indicates open source code models that are available through another community modeling portal. The portals offer much information. To download the code(s) you may be asked to register as a user at their portal. By registering you will receive updates on new releases and other community information. Your registration will help the developers demonstrate to funders the size of their model's community. If you have problems getting access to this open source code, please let us know CSDMSsupport@Colorado.edu. CSDMS has a version of the code in its library and considers the code part of the open-source CSDMS initiative.
