Hydrological analysis with a focus on the USA Middle West

PI: John Kutzbach
Institution: University of Wisconson-Madison
Abstract:
I would be interested in examining some of the output with a focus on the USA Middle West - such topics as changes in means and variability, changes in frequency of droughts or winter snow cover or severe winters, etc. Possible changes in the water balance of the upper lakes (Superior, Huron, Michigan) would also be very interesting - and this would involve looking at the entire upper lakes watershed which extends into Canada a ways, and looking at the full seasonal cycle. And, as far as possible, understanding the causes of any simulated changes.
