DICU: Delta Island Consumptive Use

The Delta Island Consumptive Use (DICU) model simulates the island monthly consumptive uses, corresponding island water supplies, and the channel diversion, seepage and return volumes for each of 142 islands in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, using the information of land use, historical precipitation, and agricultural activities. Based on the island results, it assigns the channel water volumes of each island and water quality concentrations to the DSM2 nodes, which the Delta flow and water quality models require.
