Abstract

Climate variability at the seasonal, interannual and inter-decadal time scales can be an important factor in management of urban water resources in the Southwest, yet little research on the nature and magnitude of climate impacts on that sector has occurred to date. This paper discusses a methodological framework for assessing the sensitivity of water supply and demand in five Arizona communities to variations in precipitation, and presents some preliminary findings from the assessment.
