Monthly and annual precipiatation during the 20th century over the northeast USA

PI: David P. Ahlfeld
Institution: University of Massachusetts
Abstract:
The analysis would be for a finite geographical area, specifically, the northeast USA. I would attempt to determine the relationship between the ability of the GCM's to reasonably predict precipitation patterns and the spatial scale of the prediction. The analysis would examine at least annual and seasonal patterns with finer time resolution used if this is deemed to be promising. I would prefer to study the northeast USA, since I am most familiar with this data, but I would be willing to be pick another geographic area if this one has already been claimed.

Data needed: Daily and monthly precipitation.
