Future Scenario Visualizations
The climate change input has the largest impact on water supply within the future period of the model. Future temperature, precipitation, and streamflow inputs in the NMDSWB are derived from one of four separate Global Circulation Model runs spanning three different climate emission scenarios. The population growth scenario can be used to alter the predicted population changes (UNM BBER, 2014) to determine the effects on public and domestic water use. The water use efficiency scenario changes the agricultural and human use (municipal and domestic per-capita water use rates) efficiencies. Through the historical and future periods of the model, users can compare trends in water use and supply, and be able to better understand how water use and availability temporally and spatially varies within New Mexico.
