Map of the Colorado Plateau including the San Juan Pilot study area

Map of the Colorado Plateau, including the San Juan River pilot study area.

Detailed Description

This illustration of the study area of the San Juan River Basin (SJRB) pilot project of the Colorado Plateaus Regional Availability Study, which seeks to identify possible technical challenges of using the USGS code GSFLOW for simulating groundwater and surface-water flow in the Colorado Plateau principal aquifer system. The SWRB was selected because of its relatively large area compared to other basins in the Colorado Plateau, and because it exhibits complex groundwater and surface-water exchange between mountains and plateaus representative of dominant hydrologic processes throughout the Colorado Plateau.
