GSFLOW model of the upper Deschutes Basin, Oregon

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2018

A three-dimensional integrated groundwater/surface-water model was developed for the upper Deschutes Basin in central Oregon to better understand groundwater and surface-water flow and interconnections, and to provide the capability for simulating the hydrologic response to external stresses including climate change. The model was calibrated using groundwater and streamflow observation data collected from 1980 through 2013. This data release contains all of the input and output files for simulation of historic conditions (the base run) plus three hypothetical pumping scenarios described in the associated USGS report: “Simulation of Groundwater and Surface-Water Flow in the Upper Deschutes Basin, Oregon” by Marshall W. Gannett, Kenneth E. Lite, Jr., John C. Risley, Esther M. Pischel, and Jonathan L. La Marche, U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2017-5097 ( This data release includes the GSFLOW source code.
