Hydraulic modeling analysis of the Middle Rio Grande - Escondida Reach, New Mexico


Larsen, Amanda K. 2007. Hydraulic modeling analysis of the Middle Rio Grande - Escondida Reach, New Mexico. Fort Collins, CO: Colorado State University. 209 p. Thesis.

Human influence on the Middle Rio Grande has resulted in major changes throughout the Middle Rio Grande region in central New Mexico, including problems with erosion and sedimentation. Hydraulic modeling analyses have been performed on the Middle Rio Grande to determine changes in channel morphology and other important parameters. Important changes occurring in the Escondida reach between 1918 and 2005 were analyzed for this study.

Keywords: hydraulic modeling analysis, Middle Rio Grande, New Mexico, human influence, erosion, sedimentation, channel morphology
