Résumé
The role water plays in the wellbeing of society, particularly in arid regions, has been very well recognized. It is widely accepted that the interactions between the natural, urban, agricultural, and energy-water systems control regional water management, and even overall arid region community sustainability. Understanding the dynamics of complex water systems, including inter- and intra-system linkages are necessary for effective holistic water management. This project tackles issues related to model development, integration, and developing interactions with the community. The project proposes to develop a model for agricultural water application and use aerial survey data from UAV to in part drive the model. This model, in turn, maybe a part of an integrated system to understand regional water use based on the concept of "OneWater". The integrated OneWater system models developed will combine expert opinion and scientific understanding with empirical/statistical data-driven relations to inform joint-reasoning by various stakeholders.

Objectifs
The primary objectives of the program are the following:1. Develop a water-salt interaction model for agricultural applications2. Develop methods that convert remote sensing to actionable data products3. Develop an agroecosystem model that can assimilate remotely sensed data products4. Apply integrated systems modeling approaches for the arid regions to exploreinteractions with other systems and enable OneWater thinking.5. Work with selected multi-state projectsa. S1069 : Research and Extension for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)Applications in U.S. Agriculture and Natural Resources.b. SDC101 : Advanced Understanding and Prediction of Pollutants in CriticalLandscapes in Watersheds
