This is the twentieth annual progress report of the California
Department of Water Resources' San Francisco Bay-Delta Evaluation Program (Work
Authority 1463), which is carried out by the Delta Modeling Section.
Most of the work effort during the last year was concentrated
on development, enhancement, application, and verification of Delta Simulation
Model 2 (DSM2). DSM2 is now the official model that is currently being
used in the Delta Modeling Section. VISTA, the graphical user interface
developed for DSM2, is now quite powerful, and has made it very easy for the
user to examine the model output. A number of script files, and various
post-processing routines, have also made it fairly easy for the user to conduct
multi-year planning runs.
This report was compiled by Lisa Bauer, under the direction of
Francis Chung, program manager for the Bay-Delta Evaluation Program.
