Objectifs
The principal objective of the proposed program is to develop and improve on the available estimates of water and other resource values that are needed by managers, policy makers, and stakeholders. In some cases this will involve the application of existing methods and technologies to evaluate specific watersheds in New Mexico which are needed to improve the state and regional water planning system. In other cases, for example, in understanding the valuation of salinity and the interactions between surface and groundwater systems, improved methods are needed

Descriptif
This project will examine : 1) Residential landscape and water use in New Mexico, examining the findings from a survey of New Mexico homeowners and their attitudes and preferences for residential landscapes and the factors that determine or limit their choices ; 2) Salinity control benefits in the lower Rio Grande, aiming to better understand the magnitude of these salinity-control benefits ; 3) Drought impact assessment in New Mexico, examining the relationship between climate, weather, and events like drought on the agricultural economy of New Mexico ; 4) Role of adaptation in reducing the impacts of climate change on water and agriculture, investigating the development of specific coping strategies and their benefits in both water and agricultural systems.
