Integrated Seasonal Drought Forecast-Adaptive Management System for the Lower Colorado River Basin in Texas

NIDIS Supported Research
NIDIS-Supported Research
Main Summary

This project focused on developing an integrated seasonal drought forecast-adaptive management system to mitigate drought impacts for the Lower Colorado River in Central Texas. To address rapidly growing demands and risks associated with drought, hydroclimatic (precipitation, streamflow) forecasts with seasonal lead times are proposed to provide advance information toward improved allocation decisions.
