May Integrated Modeling Workshop Brought Together International Experts

From the Delta Science Program:

Blue Delta“The Delta Stewardship Council and the National Science Foundation sponsored an Integrated Modeling Workshop May 21-22 at the University of California, Davis, to explore ways to improve the development and application of modeling for multipurpose management of changing estuarine systems.

“Like many estuarine systems, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta needs to revolutionize how models and data are developed and integrated to support adaptive management,” said Chris Enright, senior water resources engineer with the Delta Stewardship Council’s Delta Science Program.

“We have outstanding models of key system processes like hydrodynamics, transport, and food webs,” Enright said, “however we have not done a good job integrating these components to assess and explain the impacts of water operations, flood protection, and restoration decisions. We need great models, great modeling community arrangements, and great decision support systems to link technical analyses skillfully to management decisions.” …
