WEPPcloud

Run WEPP anywhere in the continental U.S.

Elevation data is from the USGS National Elevation Set. This interface uses TOPAZ for watershed delineation. The soils are built using SURGO/STATSGO. Landcover is selected based on the USGS National Landcover dataset. Climates are generated from the CLIGEN database.

338 projects and 19,708 hillslopes ran since January 1, 2021

WEPPcloud-PEP w/ WATAR

The WEPPcloud Post-Fire Erosion Prediction (PEP) allows users to upload a burn severity map and predict erosion based on fire severity. Soil textures are identified from SSURGO. Unburned conditions are assigned 2006.2 forest soils and managements based on soil texture. Burned areas are assigned burned soils and managements based on soil texture.
The PeP interface incorporates the Wildfire Ash Transport And Risk estimation tool (WATAR).

WEPPcloud-Disturbed (Experimental)

The WEPPcloud-Disturbed allows users to upload a burn severity map and predict erosion based on fire severity. Optionally, the user can forgo uploading a burn severity map to model unburned conditions. It uses SSURGO to create 7778 soils and NLCD to parameterize landuse for unburned conditions. For fire and treatment conditions soils and managements are procedurally generated and parameterized from the disturbed database based on soil texture and landuse. This allowing forests, shrubs, and grass to be burned based on landuse. The parameterization is intended to provide meaningful comparisons between unburned, burned, and treatment conditions. In the long-term disturbed is envisioned to replace the WEPPcloud-PEP interface.
This interface also incorporates the Wildfire Ash Transport And Risk estimation tool (WATAR).

421 projects and 24,642 hillslopes (23,271 WATAR hillslopes) ran since January 1, 2021

WEPPcloud-RRED (Experimental)

The RRED interface uses WEPP inputs generated by the Rapid Response Erosion Database (RRED). These database parameterizes 97.3 Disturbed WEPP soils and managements with with SSURGO/STATSGO soil data. Burn classes are assigned GeoWEPP burn severity managements.
This interface also incorporates the Wildfire Ash Transport And Risk estimation tool (WATAR).

WEPPcloud-EU

WEPPcloud for Europe.

Managements are assigned based on ESDAC landuses. Soils are built from ESDAC and EU-SoilHydroGrids data. U.S. climate stations are selected based on E-OBS monthly precip and temperatures.

The PeP interfaces provide post fire erosion modeling and ash transport modeling. Parameterizes soils based on burn severity and soil texture using Disturbed WEPP soil files. The PeP interface incorporates the Wildfire Ash Transport And Risk estimation tool (WATAR).
