An automated system has been designed to operationally produce and deliver evapotranspiration data to water resource managers. Planning and formulation of the system and development of the Scope of Work (SOW) for the Western Water Applications Office (WWAO) will occur through a partnership with the Center for Geographical Studies (CGS) at California State University, Northridge. The proposed system to be described in the SOW will include: ? Development of an automated system to monitor and transfer remote sensing data, including the Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), Landsat, and Sentinel, from the Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) ? Development of an automated system to monitor and transfer numeric weather prediction data, including National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), Modern-Era Retrospective analysis for Research and Applications (MERRA), and the Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS) ? Research and development of methods to pre-process, validate, and ingest environmental data from remote sensing and numeric weather prediction ? Development of an automated spatial re-projection system ? Development of an automated temporal interpolation and aggregation system ? Research and implementation of a variety of surface energy balance models including Priestley-Taylor Jet Propulsion Laboratory (PT-JPL), Surface Energy Balance Systems (SEBS), and MOD16 ? Development and testing of a large-scale spatial database and web-mapping service (WMS) system using GeoServer ? Design and development of an interactive WebGIS system to display and analyze model data with feedback from the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer (NMOSE) and other end-users established by WWAO ? Development of an operational pipeline that deploys these systems to high performance computing systems at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
