Title: Development of Geospatial Modeling Tools for Watershed-based Water Resources Management in New Mexico (Vivoni)

Project Type: Research

Start Date: 03/01/2006

End Date: 01/01/2007

Congressional District: Three

Focus Categories: Climatological Processes, Hydrology, Management and Planning

Keywords: geospatial modeling, forecasting, water management, climate, watershed hydrology

Principal Investigator: Vivoni, Enrique

Federal Funds: $10,000

Non-Federal Matching Funds: $4,710

Abstract: Providing decision makers with better forecasts of water supply is the aim of this project. The research will develop new geospatial modeling tools for managing water supplies in New Mexico using scientific knowledge on climate, surface, and groundwater relations. Although the modeling results are sophisticated, they will be made amenable to water managers via the web in a similar fashion to existing drought maps. The modeling tool is expected to provide detailed simulation capabilities for flood and drought forecasting, estimate runoff, evaporation and aquifer recharge, and simulate basin water storage and supply.
