The research presented here is comprised of several components; (i) a review of existing literature on scenarios, scenario studies, and scenario applications; (ii) a retrospective analysis of water management-related scenario applications that examines the implications of scenario-influenced strategies previously implemented in Arizona, (iii) the adoption of a formal scenario development approach for water resource issues within the arid and semi-arid regions of the U.S., utilizing an example application in the Upper San Pedro Basin in southern Arizona, and (iv) a comprehensive application of the scenario development process to the Verde River Watershed in northern Arizona through a simplified small-scale scenario case study approach.The entire modeling code is composed of several subroutines and scripts: a€c Initial_conditions a€“ A script that contains the initial starting values for input variables that evolve temporally. ... Evap a€“ A script that calculates evaporation using the Hargreaves temperature- based equation. a€c SRP_model ... Plotter a€“ The final script that plots the required 449 APPENDIX E WATERSHED MANAGMENT SCENARIOSanbsp;...
