KeywordsWater management, Water supply forecasting

The efficient management of water resources has long recognized the requirement for evaluating the magnitude of the seasonal ‘water crop’. Increasing demands on the available supply and proper management of temporary over and under supply situations have demonstrated a requirement for additional information on the potential volume and anticipated distribution of the water resource. Systems which the Sacramento River Forecast Center has developed to meet these requirements and the types of information which can be derived from such analysis are discussed.
