Watershed Description:50,000 km^2 Garonne River, which France’s third longest river, originates in the Spanish Pyrenean massif and discharges into the Atlantic Ocean near the City of Bordeaux in southwestern France. The watershed is located between different climatic zones, with Mediterranean climate conditions in the East of the watershed, a continental type in the South, and with an oceanic climate in the North and West. In the decade between 2000 and 2010, mean river discharges of 600 m3.s−1 were recorded at the outlet at Tonneins (the last gauging station not influenced by the tide). The daily flow variations are strongly influenced by 210 dams that have a capacity of 3.2 billion cubic meters of water (Sauvage et al., 2003).
