Russian River Integrated Hydrologic Model (RRIHM): Climate Data for 1990-2015

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

The Russian River Watershed (RRW) covers about 1,300 square miles (without Santa Rosa Plain) of urban, agricultural, and forested lands in northern Sonoma County and southern Mendocino County, California. Communities in the RRW depend on a combination of Russian River water and groundwater to meet their water-supply demands. Water is used primarily for agricultural irrigation, municipal and private wells supply, and commercial uses - such as for wineries and recreation. Annual rainfall in the RRW is highly variable, making it prone to droughts and flooding from atmospheric river events. In order to better understand surface-water and groundwater issues, the USGS is creating a Coupled Ground-Water and Surface-Water Flow Model (GSFLOW; Markstrom and others, 2008) of the RRW. This model will include climate, geology, surface-water, groundwater, and land-use data. These climate data are temperature, precipitation, solar radiation, and reference evapotranspiration observations from stations in the Russian River watershed. These data were used for the Russian River Integrated Hydrologic Model (RRIHM).
