Abstract
Water managers are increasingly recognizing climate change as a significant issue and are requesting detailed information about potential hydrologic impacts suitable for inclusion in planning. Available studies, however, are most often academic in nature and have the added limitation of being incompatible with agency specific water management models or the streamflow period of interest. Commission of system focused studies, are prohibitively expensive for most municipalities and agencies. Our goal is thus to develop a web-based system to provide widespread and low-cost access to tools that can be used to generate scenarios of future streamflow. The proposed project will determine the feasibility of developing a prototype web-based Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2) that will enable water managers at various operational- and time-scales to rapidly assess the impact of predicted climate change on natural flows at critical nodes along a river network
