Throughout the Western United States irrigation return flows contribute to the problem of water quality degradation. Evaluating the effectiveness of alternative management strategies involves models which simulate the processes encompassed by irrigated agriculture. The development and application of these models require multidisciplinary expertise. A workshop involving fifteen specialists in the varied aspects of irrigation return flow modeling was held to review the status of these models. Irrigation return flow and conjunctive use models recently developed served as focal points for the workshop. Particular emphasis was given to the description of the spatially varied aspects of soil, crop, and aquifer systems, and the proper alignment of model objectives with available data.
