This chapter examines the effects of physical changes in the Delta and different water management alternatives on Delta salinity. It uses hydrodynamic modeling tools to explore the effects of sea-level rise, island flooding, and changes in water management. The water analysis module (WAM) is used to examine the effects of sea-level rise and of Delta water management alternatives. Results from a more complete model for the Delta Risk Management Strategy (DRMS) flooded-island modeling work are also used to explore the effects of permanent island flooding.
