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.
