April 1, 2022

This model archive contains the Soil-Water-Balance (SWB) model used to simulate potential mean annual recharge in the Grand Canyon region for 1981 through 2016. The simulated results are described in the associated U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2022-5037. The model archive includes all the necessary files to document and run the SWB model and process the results as displayed in the accompanying report. The directories in the archive are presented each as a separate .zip file and include an "ancillary" directory, a "bin" directory, a "georef" directory, a "model directory, an "output" directory, and a "source" directory. There is a README file describing all the files and directories in the archive and information on how to run the model.
