Resource Category: 
Databases & Clearinghouses

The Desert Flows Database is a compilation of over 400 peer-reviewed articles, reports, and book chapters from across the watersheds that touch the Sonoran, Chihuahua, and Mojave Deserts. Funding for this project was provided by the Desert Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC). Information about environmental water needs within the database come from many sources – studies done for the express purpose of answering questions about flow needs as well as studies performed for other purposes that have minimal reference to environmental water needs.  As of 01/2016, the Desert Flows Database contains data through 07/2015.  The database contains tabular data that can be linked to geospatial data on river segments studied.
