The National Center for Computational Hydroscience and Engineering (NCCHE) at the University of Mississippi has been partnering with the United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) National Sedimentation Laboratory (NSL) since 1989 to develop, improve and apply technology towards promoting sustainable solutions to the emerging problems of the agricultural sector to reduce soil loss, improve water quality, and enhance irrigation efficiency. As part of this partnership, a number of computational models capable of simulating free-surface flows, soil erosion, gully erosion, flood flows, groundwater flows, sediment/contaminant transport, water quality, and decision support systems for watershed management have been developed such as Agricultural Integrated Management Services (AIMS). These modeling systems have been rigorously verified and validated and are continuously being improved and upgraded for new applications. These applied research efforts and modeling and decision support systems are of interest to several state and federal agencies such as USDA, USGS, NRCS, USACE, USEPA, MDEQ, as well as faculty and students in universities and professionals in consulting industries.
