Rio Puerco River, NM: Study of overbank flood dynamics

NCALM Seed Project. PI: Mariela Perignon, University of Colorado. The areas of interest are defined by three rectangular polygons with areas of 11.336, 13.281, and 16.052 km2. The polygons follow a segment of the Rio Puerco river and are located approximately 45 km southwest of Albuquerque, NM and 25 km west of Las Lunas, NM.
