The webcast seminar will talk about the Model My Watershed web app, which is part of the research center’s WikiWatershed toolkit. The user-friendly online watershed modeling app is meant to help a variety of users, including citizens, conservationists, municipal decision-makers, educators, and students.
The versatile app gives users ways to analyze nationally-available datasets on landscapes and climates, model stormwater runoff options, compare various conservation or development scenarios, and many other options.
The Watershed Academy Webcast will be online from 1-3 PM on Thursday, March 9, and will feature several guest speakers, including Anthony Aufdenkampe, Ph.D., Senior Environmental Scientist at LimnoTech and Barry M. Evans, Ph.D., Senior Research Associate at Penn State University.
The webcast will provide users with the tool’s background, and demonstrate its use. It will also highlight how the app is being successfully used in other states. Participants are eligible to receive a certificate for attending.
