The aim of the HarmonIT project is to develop an ”Open Modelling Interface and Environment (OMI)”. The purpose of this environment is to facilitate the linking of models and so allows catchment process interactions to be represented in the formulation and selection of sustainable policies for catchment management. Model linkage will address scale and resolution aspects, model concept (deterministic/stochastic), model regimes (e.g. arid/Mediterranean/arctic) and aspects of variables modelled (e.g. high flows (floods)/average conditions/low flows (summer flows)), need to represent feedback loops, lack of common data definitions ans absence of an agreed generic data model description, and finally framework, platforms, medium and physical location of models to be linked.
