This information is collected and made available for use in models (specifically Upper Rio Grande Water Operations Model [URGWOM] maintained by the US Army Corps of Engineers), habitat queries (specifically silvery minnow habitat by the US Fish and Wildlife Service), etc. for resource managers, other interested organizations, educators, individual citizens and policy makers. Also, this is quality‐controlled data with which students can compare their field measurements of water quality
