    In addition, because large-scale structural solutions for water supply for irrigated agriculture are difficult to justify on social and economic grounds Pulwarty,social science research on determinants of water use in the agricultural sector and agronomic research on improved crop varieties for dryland agriculture are needed. Assessments like those relating to the restoration of the Colorado River delta Luecke et al. Human society has always changed in response to changing resources; the challenge is now to anticipate environmental changes and develop adaptive responses before catastrophe or conflict force such evolution. Wetland restoration thus demands research that integrates hydrology, plant and animal ecology, and social science. Adaptation may involve modifying social mores and norms or forming new government policies including economic policies. Mitigation is an expensive option, both in terms of implementation and reductions in farmed area.

    This region is a very special riparian ecosystem abounding with plant and animal diversity. The contaminant may be taken up by plant roots, which is the basis of phytoremediation of hazardous wastes—Pban et al. These four themes are illustrated below, using a subset of the research priorities developed in Table The OHV area designations in the St.

    Understanding the sources and amounts of uncertainty attached to estimates of flow, water quality, and other water resource variables is crucial, because so many practical and often expensive decisions hinge on the results. During the planning process for the NCAs and the amendment to the St. Withdrawals of both groundwater and surface waters for human use can alter the flow regime, such that even subtle alterations can have large effects on the biota and function of the downgradient wetlands. The sustainability of irrigated agriculture 23 in Tableparticularly in arid and semiarid regions, is another example where a multidisciplinary Page 77 Share Cite Suggested Citation:"3 Water Resources Research Priorities for the Future.

This approach also mandates that small-scale problems be viewed within a larger-scale perspective, which may profoundly alter the understanding of causal and quantitative relationships.

BROAD SYSTEMS CONTEXT The systems approach mandates that a problem be addressed by specifying the entities that contribute to the problem, the linkages among these entities, the logical or physical boundaries to the system, and the inputs and outputs to the system as a whole in other words, linkages to entities deemed to be outside the system.

All other activities, such as fishing, hiking and back country driving within the Gila Box are free of charge. Canoeing, kayaking, and rafting enthusiasts take advantage of the spring run-off to enjoy an easy to moderately difficult floating adventure down the Gila.

Accordingly, the BLM has included an alternative that would designate a new utility and transportation corridor within the Red Cliffs NCA, accommodating all of the potential alignments Gila Box coordinated resource management plan book Washington County provided to the BLM for the northern transportation route.

For example, aquatic ecosystems research Gila Box coordinated resource management plan book emphasizes the tight linkages between the Gila Box coordinated resource management plan book biological and ecological issues and both hydrology and human use of water Poff et al.

Investigator-driven research is, by contrast, most likely to be conducted externally, by individuals based at universities, research institutes, and other nongovernmental organizations, and it is more likely to be fundamental and long-term.

It is sometimes described as curiosity-driven. The OHV area designations in the St. Conclusion The BLM is committed to working with state, tribal, and local partners as we consider land management plan provisions for our St.

The linkages among entities within a system are as important as the entities themselves; thus, a system is more than the sum of its parts see Box Currently, management of both groundwater and surface water supplies is being undertaken without adequate knowledge of the connections between the two sources, leading to conflicts and shortages.

Mission-driven Investigator-driven research is initially conceived by an individual or group of individuals, through imaginative and original thought applied to existing knowledge in a field, and it is conducted as a result of the initiative of the scientist in finding funds to support the research effort.

Camping at developed sites, and primitive camping elsewhere, is limited to 14 consecutive days. BLM off-highway vehicle OHV area designations provide the framework within which individual route designations are made. The large majority of external research is conducted by faculty at institutions of higher education, through grants and contracts with funding agencies.

Fish and Wildlife Service USFWS undertook a collaborative public process, including meetings between private land owners and state and Federal land managers, to develop a Habitat Conservation Plan HCP that allowed for continued growth while ensuring protection of the threatened Mojave desert tortoise.

A canyon section, known as the Gila Box, is composed of patchy mesquite woodlands, mature cottonwoods, sandy beaches, and grand buff-colored cliffs. No final decisions have been made, and the BLM will engage further with cooperating agencies and carefully consider all public comments on the draft plans before issuing final plans.

The need to view some of the research priorities set forth in Table within a broad systems context is illustrated below.

These themes are interdisciplinarity, a broad systems context, uncertainty, and adaptation in human and ecological response to changing water resources. Such research is usually conducted after external peer review of a research proposal submitted in competition with other investigator-initiated proposals.

Towering more than 1, feet about the Gila River, the cliffs are home to Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. External Research can be evaluated in terms of the institutional affiliation of the individuals carrying out the activity. This understanding will require decades of high-resolution chemical and biological monitoring coupled with new analytical and modeling approaches.

As part of this effort, Washington County and the U. Human society has always changed in response to changing resources; the challenge is now to anticipate environmental changes and develop adaptive responses before catastrophe or conflict force such evolution. Contaminants introduced into surface waters can follow a number of different pathways through the environment depending on water and sediment movement, the domain of hydrologists and geologists, respectively.

Indeed, these characteristics of system behavior have been highlighted as key aspects of environmental problems NRC, a. Consistent with this commitment, the BLM has held numerous formal cooperating agency meetings and many informal meetings to discuss topics of importance with the State of Utah, local counties and municipalities, area tribes, stakeholders, and Federal partners, and has sought to maximize opportunities for public input into the plan.

Similarly, measurements must reflect the competing needs of all potential users of water both human and ecologicalincluding those far downstream. Major access points are generally reachable by passenger car, but other roads may be rough at times because of infrequent maintenance.
