Summary

Modeling streamflow is an important approach for understanding landscape-scale drivers of flow and estimating flows where there are no streamgage records. In this study conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with Colorado State University, the objectives were to model streamflow metrics on small, ungaged streams in the Upper Colorado River Basin and identify streams that are potentially threatened with becoming intermittent under drier climate conditions. The Upper Colorado River Basin is a region that is critical for water resources and also projected to experience large future climate shifts toward a drying climate. A random forest modeling approach was used to model the relationship between streamflow metrics and [...]

Purpose

This study was conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with Colorado State University with the objectives of producing maps of modeled streamflow metrics on small, ungaged streams in the Upper Colorado River Basin and identifying streams that are potentially threatened with becoming intermittent in the next century based on twentieth century hydrology and our understanding of modeled future climates. The datasets presented here build on analyses developed in a previous study by Reynolds and others (2015).
