The goal of the Global Water Futures (GWF) project is to manage the water futures in Canada, and other regions that are facing climate changes such as global warming, with innovative water science and decision-making tools. The GWF Core Modelling Team is developing tools to simulate and predict hydrologic processes. Some of our contributions include (1) ensemble forcing data for large-domain hydrological models, (2) multi-scale hydrologic models, (3) continental-domain network routing models, (4) ensemble methods for data assimilation, and (5) process-based methods for model benchmarking and model evaluation. The majority of our model development work is focused on applications for streamflow forecasting, water security assessments, and improving the representation of hydrologic processes in Earth System models. This presentation summarizes some of our recent research advances and their potential application in Hawai‘i.
