Located in southern Oregon and northern California, there are approximately , acres of irrigable agriculture land and National Wildlife Refuge land in the Upper Klamath Basin. Water delivered to most of these lands comes from Upper Klamath Lake. During the spring and summer, water managers must balance the amount of water.

The State of Oregon has a right to irrigate a maximum of , acres and the State of California a maximum of , acres with water originating in the Upper Klamath Basin under a superior right to divert that water elsewhere in the Klamath . Oregon is miles ( km) north to south at longest distance, and miles ( km) east to west. With an area of 98, square miles (, km 2), Oregon is slightly larger than the United is the ninth largest state in the United States. Oregon's highest point is the summit of Mount Hood, at 11, feet (3, m), and its lowest point is the sea level of the Before statehood: Oregon Territory.

The Basin Characterization Model (BCM) can translate fine-scale maps of climate trends and projections into the hydrologic consequences to permit evaluation of the impacts to water availability at regional, watershed, and landscape scales, as caused by changes in temperature and precipitation.
