Ground-water Budgets

Ground-water budgets are commonly used in water-resource studies to gain a better understanding of the groundwater-flow system. The hydrologic cycle in the basin can be represented by a long-term water budget in which inflows are balances by outflows and, thus, no long-term change in storage occurs. The water budget can be evaluated through use of two internal budgets and their corresponding...

CoSMoS 3.0: Southern California

CoSMoS 3.0 for southern California provides detailed predictions of coastal flooding due to both future sea-level rise and storms, integrated with predictions of long-term coastal evolution (beach changes and coastal cliff retreat) for the Southern California region, from Point Conception (Santa Barbara County) to Imperial Beach (San Diego County).
