Anticipating water scarcity and informing integrative
water system response in the Pacific Northwest

This project evaluates how climate change, population growth, and economic growth will change the availability and the use of water in the Willamette River Basin (WRB) on a decadal to centennial timescale.

The six-year project began in October 2010, and is a collaborative effort of faculty from Oregon State University (OSU), the University of Oregon (UO), and Portland State University (PSU). It is funded by the National Science Foundation.
