Conceptual Modeling for Improved Understanding of the Rio Grande/Bravo Socio-Environmental System

July 23, 2019

Even in areas with highly engineered water systems, such as the Rio Grande/Bravo Basin in the southwestern United States, issues like water scarcity and over-allocation¬†of water still can be a daunting task to tackle. In this study, researchers assessed the current use of the basin and built a model to simulate the complex system. By understanding how the system works, water managers can make more informed decisions about their water use… Click here to read more.
