USGS Science Collaboration Portal for the Colorado River Basin

February 1, 2024

To help resource managers plan and mitigate long-term drought impacts in the Colorado River Basin, the USGS has launched a platform that brings together science, data, and mapping and analytical tools from across the basin in a central location. The “USGS Science Collaboration Portal for the Colorado River Basin” connects USGS scientists with other scientists, stakeholders, and communities, fostering new partnerships, lowering barriers between scientists and resource managers, and making science, data, and tools more effective and impactful for society. 

The portal will continue to grow through on-going collaboration, adding communities, data, and analytical tools that inform mitigation of long-term drought conditions and the impacts of cascading hazards such as wildfires, extreme heat, water availability, and ecosystem health across the landscape.
