Climate Change Assessment and Adaptation Planning for River Basins with Estuarine Resources
In recent decades, marked demographic and land use changes have intensified water consumption in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) river basin and have fueled bitter disputes among water user groups within and across economic sectors and regions. Efforts to reconcile these differences have not yet been successful, and the need for a shared-vision water management plan is becoming all the more critical, as the basin begins to experience new stresses from climatic change. The purpose of the research described here is to (1) develop integrated scientific information and knowledge about the ACF water resources and uses and (2) carry out quantitative assessments that the basin stakeholders need to establish a shared-vision water management framework and plan.
