GROUNDWATER MODELING REPORTS (GMR)

 

Groundwater Modeling Reports (GMR) are prepared by the Hydrology Division's Modeling Unit and aimed to document the development of tools used to simulate Arizona's water supply and the future demands it may encounter for various regions of the state.  Reports typically include information on development of conceptual models, input data, model calibration, model results and interpretation or updates to existing models.
