This data release provides a set of Hydrological Simulation Program--Fortran (HSPF) model files representing 5 EPA-selected future climate change scenarios for each of three river basins: Blackstone in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Pawcatuck in Rhode Island, and Ispwich in Massachusetts.

The Blackstone River is a river in the U.S. states of Massachusetts and Rhode flows approximately 48 mi (80 km) and drains a watershed of approximately sq.

mi (1, km 2).Its long history of industrial use has left a legacy of pollution, and it was characterized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in as "the most polluted river in the country with respect. Each climate scenario model has *.wdm file and *.uci files.

Model files have the following naming convention: river basin name>__.* where, is the change in degrees F and is the change in percent.

Folders containing each set of model files. Blackstone River is surrounded by immense beauty. This gorge is located in a public park in Blackstone, making it easily accessible. While you may have taken the trails around this waterfall in the summer, there’s truly no better time to take a trip to Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State Park than in the fall.
