This project dealt with the problem with the water supply due to rapid population and commercial agricultural growth in the American Southwest. With the Colorado River water being utilized over such a range of purposes, periodic droughts are of great concern in its neighboring communities that so heavily depend on it. The purpose of this project was to try and predict climatic changes that seem certain to reoccur. Methods of climate prediction have been made in the report to analyze the future of the water supply in the American Southwest.
