He describes the creation of a complex model intended to illustrate possible future changes in the river system and the possible impacts of those changes on ecology, agriculture, urban environments, and economic systems. The model, created by a multi-agency partnership, will help stakeholders create a 50-year water plan for the Rio Grande. Leonard A. Malczynski is an economist and software engineer.
