The proposed Software Environment for Watershed Modeling is a service-oriented framework developed to assist watershed modeling for the NSF EPSCoR-funded Western Consortium for Water Analysis, Visualization, and Exploration (WC-WAVE) project. Watershed scientists use different modeling tools to model physical phenomena across different basins. We propose a web-service centric framework to expose models as services. The framework will allow model execution in the cloud environment, submission of model data through the NetCDF standard data format and storage and access to the model resources through web services. The framework allows an easy way to publish models as linux container images through an image hub.We present background on the WC-WAVE project and the different models used in the system, describe the design and implementation of the system, provide some feature based comparisons with other related works and finally conclude the thesis with remarks and directions for future works.
