Other articles detail past and current research efforts focused on transboundary collaboration and the unique agricultural landscape and irrigation practices along the river. The final article of this issue offers perspectives and solutions for the future of the Rio Grande.
“In this issue of txH2O, we only scratch the surface of the many challenges that the Rio Grande faces, but we provide a more in-depth look at some of the efforts aimed at addressing these challenges,” said TWRI assistant director Allen Berthold in the opening letter to the magazine.
