Reciprocal STSM 2013 to University of Waikato, New Zealand
R. Iestyn Woolway (UK) was hosted by David Hamilton and his research group, University of Waikato, New Zealand (July-August 2013). The main aim of this RSTSM was to convert the numerical codes for calculating the different components of the surface energy budget of a lake into a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and web based tool. This built on the Lake Analzer tool previously developed by the group at University of Waikato and colleagues in GLEON (http://lakeanalyzer.gleon.org). The numerical code for calculating the different components of heat budgets was written at CEH Lancaster by Iestyn Woolway and Ian Jones prior to visiting New Zealand. This project was of great relevance to NETLAKE, in particular to Working Group 2 ‘Developing a toolbox of data analysis and modelling tools’ as the main aim of STSM is to develop a tool for processing high frequency data. It is envisaged that the tool will be available to all NETLAKE members through the online application.
