Computer Modeling to create "Science" reports on the Delta
Issue:  "Garbage in, garbage out".  Use of computer modeling to determine impacts from proposed actions in the Delta can be an effective tool IF, and only IF, the raw data is input correctly.  When incorrect or false raw data is input, common sense says the output will also be incorrect.  Currently, challenges to data input and output of computer modeling are ignored or explained away by comments like the DSC mantra "we're using the best science available".  Since, like historical facts, incorrect raw data imput is a provable and measurable item, it is a matter of time for the legal impacts of use of false data (to validate revision of the Delta) will affect the state agencies and the contractors who generate the false data. 
Examples of computer modeling data imput:  How State Water Contractors will make at least $1.5 billion extra per year by revision of Yolo Bypass flow modeling(video 10/19/2011), Waterflow calculations, DRMS Phase 1, Bacon Island-Jones Tract studies

Below are maps from different reports utilizing computer modeling for salinity, flow, toxins, and more.  Click on the thumbnails to see the full size and to see the reference website link if you want to go see the full report.  In the meantime, if you want to go to the government websites with modeling reports, use key words like CALSIM, DSM2, Trim or UnTrim, REALM at http://www.water.ca.gov
The very detailed reports for the Sacramento and San Joaquin Ship Channel dredging and the SDIP plans provide extensive "results" computer modeling for the effects on the whole Delta region, it appears.
