Water resources management in the Carolinas

PI: Greg Carbone
Institution: University of South Carolina
This program examines how decision makers currently use climate information to manage water and how such use could be expanded most beneficially. Five specific questions frame the research:

(1) How can current operational practices benefit from greater use of historic and near-real time climate information?

(2) How can models be improved to better represent the key interactions between climate and hydrologic systems that are identified by water resource managers?

(3) What is the most effective way to present the science of future climate variability into the current decision-making framework?

(4) What are the parameters of climate variability that have the greatest influence on the decisions of water resource managers and users heavily dependent on water?

(5) What are decision makers' tolerance levels for climate variability and change and what priorities order their associated risks of failure?

Collectively, these questions address the need for integrating climate science, societal impacts, and decision making and policy.
