River Case Studies
SHIRA was originally developed and piloted by our team using the lower Mokelumne River below Camanche Dam as the testbed. Subsequently, we deployed SHIRA on the Trinity River below Lewiston Dam and the lower Yuba River below Englebright Dam. In later years we trained river managers responsible for the lower American River and the Feather River in the use of SHIRA. In addition, the undergraduate and graduate students who worked on SHIRA projects went on to work for a diversity of river restoration consulting firms and other universities, bringing SHIRA and its underlying principles to a large number of river projects. We have not systematically tracked this diaspora.
This part of the website presents the detailed stories of our original testbed rivers as well as information from the two other rivers we have some connection to.
