Columbia Basin Trust. 2017. Water Monitoring and Climate Change in the Upper Columbia Basin. Prepared by Martin Carver for the Columbia Basin Trust. Link to Full Report. Link to Highlights.
The CBT Release says:
Responding to a growing interest in current information about water resources and water monitoring efforts, Columbia Basin Trust has released a report about the current state of water knowledge in the Columbia Basin Trust region. The report is called Water Monitoring and Climate Change in the Upper Columbia Basin.

Since climate change can influence the quality and quantity of Basin water resources, understanding relevant changes and trends is increasingly important for Basin communities and resource managers. The report includes: 

  • an overview of Columbia Basin water resources, from glaciers to groundwater, and pressures on them
  • anticipated effects of climate change on various types of water resources in the Basin
  • status and scope of water monitoring efforts in the region 
  • an outline of opportunities to fill knowledge gaps about water resources to support a range of activities such as ecosystem stewardship and community water supply planning.
