WEPPcloud

Run WEPP anywhere in the continental U.S.

Elevation data is from the USGS National Elevation Set. This interface uses TOPAZ for watershed delineation. The soils are built using SURGO/STATSGO. Landcover is selected based on the USGS National Landcover dataset. Climates are generated from the CLIGEN database.

Start WEPPcloud Run 10m (Experimental)

782 projects and 33,409 hillslopes ran since January 1, 2019

WEPPcloud-PEP

The WEPPcloud Post-Fire Erosion Prediction (PEP) allows users to upload a burn severity map and predict erosion based on fire severity.

The RRED interface uses WEPP inputs generated by the Rapid Response Erosion Database (RRED). These parameterize Disturbed WEPP soils and managements with with SSURGO/STATSGO soil data.

Start WEPPcloud Run RRED Soils and Landcover (Experimental)

372 projects and 2,326 hillslopes ran since January 1, 2019

WEPPcloud-EU

WEPPcloud for Europe.

Managements are assigned based on ESDAC landuses. Soils are built from ESDAC and EU-SoilHydroGrids data. U.S. climate stations are selected based on E-OBS monthly precip and temperatures.

The PeP interfaces provide post fire erosion modeling and ash transport modeling. Method 1 assigns landuse and soils based on burn severity. Method 2 parameterizes soils based on burn severity and soil texture using Disturbed WEPP soil files.

WEPPcloud-RHEM

Run the Rangeland Hydrology and Erosion Model (RHEM) over the US.

Where available foliar and ground covers are estimated from NLCD Shrubland 2016 data.

SURGO/STATSGO is used to identify soil textures

Change Log

DateNotable Change
June 17, 2019Hillslope and Watershed ash transport modeling for WEPPcloud-PEP. Single Storm climate fully implemented.
May 17, 2019Annual climate precip, tmax, tmin in station summary and .cli summary. Phosphorus variables removed from freq flood report when not ran. Units fixed for runoff on combined watershed viewer. Summary for wepp run is now populated. Mary Ellen's soil texture classification incorporated. Soil texture based on surgo data in ERMiT download. ERMiT meta data file contains climate station information (state, station description, par). Link to FSWEPP batch processing scripts below the ERMiT csv. Units pretty much everywhere rounding to 2 significant digits. MCL and CSA inputs respect the units of the project (m and ha or ft and acre). Tab titles now include project name if a project name is defined.
March 29, 2019Various usability enhancements. 10-min and 30-min peak rainfall intensities added to return period analysis. soil fix for channels and hillslopes with dominate water.
February 14, 2019Hazard SEES - FireEarth Data Portals added.
