vertically polarized microwave radiation at 12 channels and six frequencies ranging from 6.9 to 89.0 GHz. Its observations at moderately low frequencies are very sensitive to land water in various forms, such as soil moisture, vegetation water content, and snow, and are little affected by atmosphere conditions. AMSR-E was launched in June 2002 and functioned well until October 2011. During this period, TGD experienced two impounding stages: the initial stage of impoundment with a water level increasing

applicable sea surface temperature (SST) variations as boundary conditions in the GCM in order to address the uncertainties in the climate trends. Detailed reviews were made addressing the gaps ( Dragoni and Sukhija 2008 ; Earman and Dettinger 2011 ), but the climate change impacts on urban groundwater systems have not received the desired attention. Furthermore, there is yet limited information on addressing impacts from a combination of climate change and management scenarios ( Risbey et al. 2007

inflow (and outflow) boundary conditions of the hydraulic model itself (see, e.g., Neal et al. 2011 ). Surveys to collect remotely sensed imagery of the extent of the flood are an extremely valuable source of observational data, especially for 2D models where the image cannot only be used as a global calibration dataset of the model domain but also as a source of information for understanding and improving the model structure ( Schumann et al. 2009 ). Prior to the invention of digital imagery

) simulating runoff sensitivities for a range of changes in temperature, potential evapotranspiration (PET), and precipitation; 3) evaluating extremely low future water supply and drought scenarios; and 4) formulating and assessing test cases for future water demand. 2. Background 2.1. Salt Lake City's water supply system SLC delivers treated water to over 349 000 people in and beyond the municipal boundary of Utah's largest city. SLC's water supplies come from four primary sources: canyons in the Wasatch
