Summary

Background Climate change during the past century has resulted in changes to precipitation amounts, form (rain vs. snow), as well as frequency and intensity in the northeastern US (Huntington et al., 2009). Additional changes in precipitation are forecast for the 21st Century as the global and regional climate is expected to warm substantially (Hayhoe et al., 2007). These ongoing and projected future changes in precipitation along with other related changes to evapotranspiration rates and land use patterns will result in changes in streamflow patterns as well (Hayhoe et al., 2007). Although precipitation amounts have generally increased in the Northeast during the past 20-30 years (Huntington et al., 2009), climate models show [...]

Project Extension

parts
typeShort Project Description
valueChanges in precipitation patterns must be accounted for by engineers to safely design and build infrastructure; ensuring that these projects can withstand changes in peak streamflow. Therefore, design of new, and redesign of aging, infrastructure requires information about how predicted changes in precipitation will affect peak streamflow in the future. the USGS New York Water Science Center (NYWSC), in cooperation with the New York Department of Transportation (NYDOT), and the Nature Conservancy (TNC) proposes to construct a Geographical User Interface (GUI) that would allow the user to estimate changes in peak streamflow from predicted changes in precipitation.
