Development and Delivery of Server-Side Water Resources Models Using Web-Based Interfaces
MetadataShow full item record
This research is a collection of three projects that utilize various coding concepts and framework required to implement web-based server-side processing of common water resources modeling scenarios. The three publications utilize combinations of HTML/CSS, Python, R, and PHP scripts with each chapter expanding upon the work of the previous. The first, SolidsInRivers develops a database-search engine to make estimates of Solids Flux and Solids Concentrations in river systems. NewANTS is a collection of analytical and semi- analytical solutions to various forms of contaminant transport in different geometries. Finally, EPANETOL describes methods to employ professionally successful hydrologic modeling tools into the web environment. It is run through a web-browser and the section also describes how to build a functioning web-server-accessed implementation of EPANETOL. These three papers form a logical sequence and represent the first steps toward the eventual goal of a fully browser-enabled EPANET interface thereby achieving true operating system and potentially architectural independence.
