Exploring catchment connections with integrated hydrologic models : system interactions and responses to groundwater extraction and climate change in the San Joaquin River basin
MetadataShow full item record
The water that we rely on exists as the result of complex interacting processes that occur over a range of temporal and spatial scales. Historically hydrologic research has been directed at the study of individual processes or components of the larger hydrologic or water resource system, but the advent of sophisticated integrated hydrologic simulation tools in recent decades has enabled a more comprehensive approach to studying the factors that control the quantity, timing, and location of water in the environment. Specifically, such tools provide a platform through which to quantify fluxes and ...
