CI-Water: Water Resources Modeling

As populations grow and land use shifts, water availability in the Intermountain West is becoming an increasingly important issue. Decisions about water use and storage are complicated by many factors. Join us to learn how researchers are using computer models to study the interactions between natural and human water resource systems, and how variables introduced into those systems may impact water availability. Work together to translate what you learn for classroom use, identifying what students should know about water issues, sustainability and the use of models to help us make decisions.
