    • Application of a Land Surface Model for Drought Monitoring and Prediction in Washington State 

      Shukla, Shraddhanand (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
      Shukla will provide an introduction to drought modeling. There have been 20 major drought events since 1900. This provided the motivation to develop objective measures of climate and hydrology to help characterize and ...
    • Climate and the Future of Water Resources in the Northwest 

      Mote, Philip (University of Washington Water Center, 2005-02-17)
      Mote will consider the roles and behavior of temperature and precipitation on stream flow. He will conclude that warming shifts flow from summer to winter, and that warming will continue, although the effect on precipiation ...
    • Climate Change and Fish in the Pacific Northwest: Case Study of the Snoqualmie River Basin 

      Bisson, Pete (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-04-28)
      In this presentation, Bisson compares the results of a 50-year retrospective analysis of temperature, precipitation, and flow in the upper Snoqualmie River basin with the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group’s ...
    • Global Climate Change: Developments Since the IPCC 4th Assessment Report 

      Mote, Philip (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-02-10)
      Mote will present a follow-on discussion of global climate change issues since the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report in 2007. Note that this is not an official IPCC update, which ...

      Hamlet will provide an overview of hydrologic changes in the Western United States from 1916-2003. He will consider snowpack, water supply, temperature, precipitation, seasonal water balance, runoff, and soil moisture. He ...
    • An Integrated Assessment of the Impacts of Climate Change on Washington State 

      Elsner, Marketa McGuire (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
      Elsner will outline the Washington State Climate Impacts Assessment program. This is a comprehensive state climate change assessment that includes the impacts of global warming. She will detail the goals, challanges, and ...
    • Landscape System Response Under a Changing Climate 

      Istanbulluoglu, Erkan (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-23)
      In this talk, Dr. Istanbulluoglu will: 1. Examine the effect of climate and "nature's engine" on resource/water management, impacting recreation, clean water, ecosystem, natural hazards, and irrigation. 2. Consider ...
    • New Scenarios for Pacific Northwest Climate Change 

      Salathé, Eric (University of Washington Water Center, 2006-02-16)
      Salathé will review evidence of climate change in the Pacific Northwest. Weather station evidence shows a pattern of warming. Models predict warming of 1/4 to 1 degree Fahrenheit per decade. There will probably be more ...
    • Pacific Northwest Climate Change: Do Global Models Tell the Whole Story? 

      Salathé, Eric (Unviersity of Washington Water Center, 2007-02-14)
      Salathé will review modeled scenarios for Pacific Northwest climate change. He will discuss how the models are developed, and what they predict for the Puget Sound region: more rain and higher winter temperatures. He will ...
