SUTRA model used to evaluate the freshwater flow system for a future (2080-2099) climate on Guam

October 2, 2019

A previously published three-dimensional, groundwater model (SUTRA)
(http://doi.org/10.3133/sir20135216) was used to evaluate the effects
of future climate and withdrawal on the freshwater lens of Guam. The
model was run using 2080 to 2099 estimated recharge and sea-level
rise. This USGS data release contains all of the input and output files
for the simulations described in the associated report "Water resources
on Guam--Potential impacts of and adaptive response to climate change:
U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2019-5095" by
Gingerich, S.B., Johnson, A.G., Rosa, S.N., Marineau, M.D., Wright, S.A.,
Hay, L.E., Widlansky, M.J., Jenson, J.W., Wong, C.I., Banner, J.L.,
Keener, V.W., and Finucane, M.L.(https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20195095).
This data release also includes SUTRA source code.
