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.

LEARN

Internships, field trips, field courses, and research opportunities for undergraduates. These will be designed to promote interest in water issues in order to engage and motivate students to pursue graduate education and/or careers in water resources.

MODEL

Select models of interest, specify parameter values (constrained automatically to valid values using a knowledge base) 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.
