Integrated data and models to inform environmental flow planning in the Colorado River Delta

The United States and Mexico have engaged in restoration of the Colorado River Delta under Minute 319, a binational agreement on Colorado River management.  Under this agreement, environmental flows have been delivered into the Colorado River below Morelos Dam since 2013, including a large “pulse flow” in 2014.  This presentation summarizes an integration of data and models (IDM) developed from the environmental flows, developed as a tool to support decision makers’ efforts to plan and design future environmental flow deliveries to the Colorado River delta.
