Available Water Remaining for the United States (AWARE-US)
Abstract: The online version of the AWARE-US model provides monthly water stress characterization factors (CFs) for all counties in the continental United States. The online tool provides a General User Interface (GUI) that enables users to custom tailor results based multiple criteria including: Geography (State), County (Name), and Time Period (Annual, Month). Further, the model supports the calculation of regionalized water scarcity footprints, contingent on user provided monthly water consumption data.
General Modeling Type:
Dynamic (without feedbacks)
Primary analytical purpose:
Environmental: Analysis of the environmental effects of bioenergy and bioproduct technologies or feedstocks.
Secondary analytical purpose:
Life-cycle analysis: Analysis of the environmental, social, or economics effects of bioenergy and bioproduct technologies across their entire life-cycle.
- Water Impacts (quality and/or quantity)
