Impacts of Potential Climate Change on Colorado-Big Thompson System Operations
The objective of this study is to examine the response of the Colorado-Big Thompson (CBT) system to specific local changes in climate, using the model CBTAOP to project the operating plan...

Comparison of Nested Models' Local-Scale Precipitation from a Three-Year Base Run and a Corresponding Doubled CO2 Run
Comparisons were made of nested model simulated precipitation from a 3-yr base run and the corresponding doubled-CO2 run for the Gunnison watershed...

A GIS Approach for Studying Irrigation Management Alternatives to Reduce Salt Loading of River Basins
As part of an ongoing effort to improve the water quality of the Colorado River, many methods have been employed to analyze the overall benefits of alternate irrigation management practices...

Distribution and Mobilization of Dissolved Selenium in Ground Water of the Irrigated Grand and Uncompahgre Valleys, Western Colorado
Distribution of dissolved selenium in ground water of the irrigated Grand and Uncompahgre Valleys is affected by the aqueous geochemical environment of the shallow ground-water system...

Streamflow Depletions Considered in Water Transfers
In the State of Colorado, streamflow depletions are defined as that amount of water diverted to beneficial use minus return flows to the stream system. This paper summarizes the engineering...

Water Transfer: Applicants and Objectors Analyses
Two different analyses of the historical on-farm consumptive use and return flows of agricultural water rights in Northern Colorado are discussed. The City of Thornton plans the transfer...
