iUTAH researchers have developed and deployed an ecohydrologic observatory to study water in ‘Gradients Along Mountain to Urban Transitions’ (GAMUT). The GAMUT Network measures aspects of climate, hydrology, and water quality along a mountain-to-urban gradient in three watersheds that share common water sources (winter-derived precipitation) but differ in the human and biophysical nature of land-use transitions. View the GAMUT Fact Sheet.

GAMUT Cyberinfrastructure

The collection and dissemination of data from the GAMUT Network is supported by various cyberinfrastructure applications illustrated by this workflow.

GAMUT Workflow
This is a workflow illustrating the steps in the flow of GAMUT data and the CI tools deployed to support it.

 

Data Publication System
Access to real-time sensor data is available to researchers, educators, and other stakeholders via online visualization.

 

GAMUT Watersheds
Information on each of the three GAMUT watersheds with pictures and current conditions of each GAMUT site are available online:

 

GAMUT ODM Tools Python

ODM Tools Python was developed by the CI Team to provide GAMUT technicians the tools to transform raw streaming sensor data to quality controlled data products that can confidently be used for analysis and modeling. Source code and installations for this open source software application.

 

GAMUT Equipment Managment System

To provide GAMUT technicians access to information about physical equipment inventory and associated actions such as deployments and calibrations, the CI Team has developed an extended data model and web interface. Source code for the equipment management system.


 

 

GAMUT Equipment Managment System

Sample and Analysis Plan Stream Water Quality and Quantity for GAMUT Version 1.2 - May 2014 was developed by the iUTAH Water Quality Team, a subgroup of Research Focus Area 1 (Ecohydrology) in support of the GAMUT monitoring network. This work was supported by NSF EPSCoR award OIA 12-08732 to Utah State University, as part of the State of Utah Research Infrastructure Improvement Award.
