Summaries of Decision Support Data for Identifying the Most Cost-Effective Water Conservation Projects in the Red River basin


These datasets for the Red River were drawn from recent large-scale hydrologic modeling studies of the basin and agency reports. McPherson et al. (2016) generated down-scaled estimates of air temperature and precipitation for historical time series and for future climate scenarios across the Red River basin. This study also provided runoff estimates, reservoir storage volumes and capacities, and historical water usage from each reservoir in a RiverWare model. Xue et al. (2015) incorporated the downscaled outputs of temperature and precipitation from McPherson et al. (2016) as inputs to a basin-wide rainfall-runoff hydrologic model (VIC model). Water rights data were compiled from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the Oklahoma [...]
