Reconciling Projections of Future Colorado River Streamflow
This research team is outlining the application of decision analysis techniques to climate projections on the Colorado River. The projections generated by this project will ultimately be most useful to managers who need to know about the impacts of future streamflow variability on system resources. To this end, the team has been modifying the Bureau of Reclamation’s long-term planning and policy model, the Colorado River Simulation System (CRSS), in preparation for input of streamflow projection data. The team is finalizing an interview protocol to evaluate how project findings are informing policy and decision making in the basin.
