Nagler, P.L., Sall, I., Barreto-Muñoz, A., and Didan, K., 2023, Remotely-sensed observations of restoration sites of the riparian corridor of the Colorado River Delta in Mexico, 2013-2022: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


These data were compiled for evaluating plant water use, or river-reach level evapotranspiration (ET) data, in the riparian corridor of the Colorado River delta as specified under Minute 319 of the 1944 Water Treaty. Additionally, these data were compiled for evaluating restoration-level data in Reach 2 and Reach 4, as specified under Minute 323 of the 1944 Water Treaty. Objectives of our study were to measure the peak growing season evapotranspiration (ET) for the average of months in summer-fall (May to October) for the seven reaches, for the full riparian corridor, and for four restoration sites, from 2013 through 2022. The seven reach areas from the Northerly International Boundary (NIB) to the end of the delta at the Gulf of California [...]

The purpose of these river-reach level evapotranspiration (ET) data are to provide estimates of the long-term riparian community water use for seven reaches in the delta over 9 years from 2013 through 2022. These data were designed and created to assist end users in utilizing the restoration water use information and may be used by researchers that assist both land and water managers for federal and tribal governments, as well as non-governmental organizations. Additionally, these data could be useful to researchers interested in a wide variety of analyses that use specific time-series peak growing season ET remote sensing data for the Lower Colorado River delta in Mexico.
