CRB-ASIST is focused on building cross-disciplinary connections to weave together the scientific knowledge related to drought conditions and effects in the Colorado River Basin. Science is continually advancing, and there is an increasing need to interpret the connections between studies to predict effects of drought and other changes affecting systems in the Basin.

The principal objective of this integrated science and technology project is to increase the amount of interdisciplinary science conducted by the USGS in the Colorado River Basin, so that USGS can deliver actionable information at the speed and scales needed for stakeholder decision making. Interdisciplinary science evaluates the wide-ranging effects of drought and supports collaboration between stakeholders, scientists, and technology specialists. The complexity of drought effects on human and natural systems in the Colorado River Basin requires the USGS to use interdisciplinary science to provide data and tools needed to address multiple cross-cutting stakeholder science priorities. This project unifies USGS expertise, capabilities, and stakeholder relationships in the Colorado River Basin through the incorporation of advanced information management technology needed to improve science integration and scenario planning.
