Project United States Department of the Interior, Geological Survey, Caribbean District, Guaynabo, Puerto Rico
This project, submitted to the United States Geological Survey, Caribbean District, assesses land use changes between 1977 and 1995 in selected river basins of Puerto Rico and determines their significance for the hydrologic response to rainfall. A GIS software package was used to analyze these land use changes, and a statistical analysis was conducted to evaluate the significance of these changes in modeling basin discharge. Based on these analyses, we developed recommendations to mitigate the detrimental hydrologic effects of such changes.
