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.
