Development and Application of a California Basin Water and Energy Model
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The goal of this project is to develop an economic pricing model based on pumping data, test this model with dynamically and statistically downscaled climate and streamflow model data. A baseline climate and ensemble climate simulations will be generated for the economic pricing inputs, and for the analysis of the likelihood of climatic variations, including extremes (e.g. prolonged drought) that impact groundwater and pricing. This meets the PIER goal of understanding the impacts of climate variability on California water-energy infrastructure and associated economic impacts.
