Climate Change Information to Planning Freshwater Ecosystems in the San Francisco Bay Watershed

In heavily developed water systems such as the San Francisco Bay Watershed, water management decision-making processes requires new tools that can characterize potential tradeoffs between water management objectives in the face of climate change and other stressors.

With funding from the U.S. EPA, SEI has redefined and applied SEI’s WEAP software so that it can be used to carry-out studies that examine how climate change information can be incorporated into the planning of freshwater ecosystems.
