Brantley Lake and Dam Pecos River Operations Modeling Data from Pecos River Basin Study

Time-series water operations data modeled by the Pecos River Operations Model (PROM) data for the Pecos River Basin Study as part of the Water SMART Program. This study used data from five downscaled and bias-corrected Global Climate Models (GCMs) run through a Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) hydrological model. Outputs at key headwater and tributary gages were then used as inputs and run through a RiverWare operations model, PROM. There are ten runs for each GCM which includes: a baseline run, five alternate management strategy runs, and four water footprint runs.
