New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute Technical – 2009
The binational western Hueco Bolson-Paso del Norte area of the southern Rio Grande rift (RGr) tectonic province occupies parts of Trans-Pecos Texas and south-central New Mexico, USA, and north-central Chihuahua, MX. It includes a long reach of the Rio Grande Valley, adjacent parts of the southern Mesilla and Tularosa Basins, and the El Paso-Ciudad Juárez metro-area with a population of about two million. This overview and progress report emphasizes recent development of hydrogeologic-framework models and GIS datasets that integrate large amounts of geologic and geochemical information on Neogene RGr basin-fill (Santa Fe Group) and river-valley aquifer systems.

U.S. Geological Survey 2009
Groundwater is an important part of the global fresh water supply and is affected by climate. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists are working with local, State, Federal, and international partners to understand how the availability and sustainability of groundwater resources in the United States will be affected by climate variability and change.

UN Water – 2008
Approximately 40 per cent of the world’s population lives in river and lake basins that comprise two or more countries, and perhaps even more significantly, over 90 per cent lives in countries that share basins. The existing 263 transboundary2 lake and river basins cover nearly one half of the Earth’s land surface and account for an estimated 60 per cent of global freshwater flow.

U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY – 2006
There is a need to estimate dynamically integrated supply-and-demand components of irrigated agriculture as part of the simulation of surface-water and ground-water flow. To meet this need, a computer program called the Farm Process (FMP1) was developed for the U.S. Geological Survey three-dimensional finite-difference modular ground-water flow model, MODFLOW- 2000 (MF2K).
