Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program (GCDAMP)

The Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center (GCMRC) is the science provider for the Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program (GCDAMP), and its scientists study the effects of Glen Canyon Dam operations on the resources of Grand Canyon. More information about the GCDAMP can be found at the Bureau of Reclamation and the GCDAMP Wiki page. Neither of these sites are US Geological Survey (USGS) websites, so accessing those sites means you will leave the USGS website and will be entering other domains.
