Overview: Changes in land use and climate affect ecosystem sustainability by altering the availability of essential resources. Ecohydrological models can quantify the effect of these changes on hydrological and ecological processes. However, integrating various key ecohydrological model components is often difficult for many interdisciplinary students and researchers. This workshop will provide students and researchers with skills to efficiently integrate spatial, weather, and hydrology data for building an ecohydrological model using the open-access software programs QGIS and R. This half-day workshop is targeted at ecohydrological modeling beginners. We will introduce basic concepts of organizing data, knowledge of data inputs, and uses of necessary software interfaces. Participants will gain hands-on experience building, calibrating, validating, and visualizing ecohydrological model outcomes in QGIS and R. We will also leave time to discuss and provide hands-on support for potential and current model set up, calibration, and validation issues. Participants will bring their own personal laptops and will be alerted prior to the workshop via email of specific software requirements required for participation in the workshop.

Intended Audience: Graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers
