Santiam River Basin, Oregon - Uncertainty, reliability, and resiliency analysis

Santiam River Basin, Oregon - Uncertainty, reliability, and resiliency analysis

This project will apply downscaled regional precipitation and temperature projections to model runoff in the Santiam River, Oregon. Predicted runoff volumes will be coupled with reservoir operation models to investigate the outcomes of different optimization approaches, uncertainty levels, and operation priorities on flooding, water supply, power generation, water temperature, and aquatic habitat and food resources. Model simulations will evaluate hypotheses regarding the resilience of elements of river systems to a changing climate and investigate the risk associated with current and proposed approaches to modifying dam operations.
