AbstractA problem area in southern New Mexico was selected where data were available on long-term changes in the system, especially the vegetation, as a response to naturally occurring climatic fluctuations. The objective here was to try to extract from experience, the literature, and the data base enough information about the system to represent it in simulation models. Analysis of this total-system problem required crossing disciplines to secure personnel with adequate subject matter and analytical capabilities, operational approaches, and flexibility in attitude, outlook, and operation.
