Example of the validity of one of the hydrological
models (VIC). Shown is the time history of observed inflow
to the Shasta Reservoir (black line) along with the VIC produced values
(red) when the VIC is forced by observed weather variables. The main
message here is that if the downscaled anthropogenic-impacted data are
correct, our estimates of river flow, etc. are apt to be pretty good.
