The Texas Water Journal published a new article in the Volume 11, Number 1, 2020 issue titled “Runoff Inflow Volumes to the Highland Lakes in Central Texas: Temporal Trends in Volumes and Relations between Volumes and Selected Climatic Indices” by Raymond M. Slade, Jr.
The article focuses on the decreased inflow to the Highland Lakes from 1942–2013. According to the abstract, the decrease is likely due to increased evapotranspiration from the proliferation of 19 major upstream reservoirs and about 69,500 minor reservoirs and water bodies. This paper references eight climatic indices evaluated with respect to correlations with inflow volumes to the lakes.
The journal, an online, peer-reviewed journal published by the nonprofit The Texas Water Journal and the Texas Water Resources Institute, publishes papers as they are complete. It is devoted to the timely consideration of Texas water resources management, research and policy issues from a multidisciplinary perspective that integrates science, engineering, law, planning and other disciplines. It also provides updates on key state legislation and policy changes by Texas administrative agencies.
