Decision-Support Tools

OK NSF EPSCoR Research Product Clearinghouse

The Research Product Clearinghouse portion of the EPSCoR website provides access to a diverse body of resources from the OK NSF EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Award No. OIA-1301789 (2013-2018), “Adapting Socio-Ecological Systems to Increased Climate Variability.” Resources derived from this project include decision-support tools and systems that will prove beneficial for researchers, decision-makers, and individuals. The Decision Support page provides a link to all the decision-support products developed as a result of this project. The tools outlined below are an important part of the OK NSF EPSCoR research team's work, which was produced in collaboration with contributing programs and agencies.

Water: Data & Tools

Oklahoma Soil Moisture Mapping System
This new web-accessible soil moisture mapping system is designed to create and deliver high-resolution soil moisture maps for the entire state of Oklahoma on a daily basis. Soil moisture is an essential climate variable, and this first-of-its-kind mapping system will provide Oklahomans with detailed soil moisture information that is relevant to decisions in diverse fields including agriculture, fire danger management, and hydrologic forecasting.

Oklahoma Water Survey Data Portal
The Oklahoma Water Survey Data Portal, developed with support from Oklahoma NSF EPSCoR, is an important tool that provides an online, integrated source of water information gathered from more than 20 different government agencies, tribes and organizations with water management interests and responsibilities. The portal provides water resource managers and other users with an efficient and effective method to obtain, organize and interpret local water quantity and water quality data.
