Enhanced Water Supply Stress Tool Supports Decision Making in the United States and Mexico
EFETAC scientists have enhanced the Water Supply Stress Index (WaSSI) model with a new web interface and mapping tool to help resource managers, planners, and other decision makers evaluate the balances and tradeoffs between water availability and carbon sequestration in the lower 48 United States and Mexico. WaSSI users can select from a variety of future climate scenarios, and adjust temperature, precipitation, land cover, and water use factors to simulate an unlimited number of global change scenarios for any timeframe from 1961 through the year 2100. Simulation results are available as downloadable graphs, maps, and data files that users can save and apply to their unique information and project needs. Learn more about WaSSI.
