ABOUT

The Sustainable Water Resources project is funded by the USDA under Grant No. 2015-68007-23130 to work with regional stakeholders developing a shared understanding of future scenarios of water availability and use in the Middle Rio Grande valley of southern New Mexico, west Texas, and northern Chihuahua.

The Sustainable Water through Integrated Modeling platform (SWIM) is funded by NSF Award OAC-1835897 and uses resources from Cyber-ShARE Center of Excellence supported by NSF grant HRD-1242122.

FINDINGS

A summary presentation of project findings is available here. For more details, a summary report is available by clicking here.

MODEL WITH SWIM 2.0

Select models of interest, specify parameter values and scenarios of interest, run the models on our server, and visualize the results in a variety of ways.

CONTRIBUTE

Our approach integrates research and extension through the direct involvement of stakeholders in the research modeling process. As the research proceeds, both scientists and stakeholders will learn from each other and from the process.
