The intended purpose will be to study the hydrologic characteristics of Upper Klamath Basin to include the quantity, quality and distribution of all water, both above and below ground surface, and the geologic environment in which the water resides.

The purpose may also entail studying and utilizing
specific instrumentation used to measure water resources, both above and below ground surface, and for measuring the geologic characteristics of the basin in which the water resides.

Model development and modeling studies may also be included as part of the purpose, as well as the impacts of climate change on the Upper Klamath Basin hydrology.
