SAMANIEGO LOPEZ, Marco Antonio. The historical variability of the Colorado River current. The link with draft 319. Estud. front [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.37, pp.81-102. ISSN 2395-9134.

The purpose of this article is to analyze the effects of the historical variability of the Colorado River current and how this variability has been used in the discussions for the control and administration of the mentioned international basin. Based on the analysis of studies carried out by various US engineers, lawyers and politicians, we have shown that since the beginning of the 20th century this variability was known. Specifically, it seeks to explain the meaning and consequences of the issue of variability in minutes 319, signed by the International Boundary and Water Commission, where for the first time, since several sectors have insisted on deepening the issue of defining “extraordinary gear”, arguing that a fixed quota for Mexico did not take into account the climate change factor.

Palabras llave : transboundary basin; seismic zone; cooperation-conflict; variability.
