Paleoshorelines surrounding multiple closed-basin lakes in this area record fluctuations in lake level since deglaciation.
Shorelines along two of these lakes, Hundeso and Lake E, were surveyed and trenched to reconstruct the history of lake-level change.
Coupled with regional-scale environmental dynamics are local-scale human behaviors and resulting activities in response to perceived change, available technologies and existing policy infrastructures.
The overall objective of the this research is to understand how humans interact with freshwater on local scales in selected parts of the Arctic, how these interactions have changed in the recent past, and how they are likely to change in the future.
We seek to develop a model that will allow better prediction of climate-induced changes in the hydrologic cycle particularly at local scales.
Our award-winning resources, programs and services offer support to Veterans, Service members and their family.For the 20-year simulation period, VIC was applied over a 50 km by 50 km Lambert Equal-Area (EASE) grid projection.We examine interannual variability in pan-arctic water and energy balances, as well as various partitions thereof at continental and major river basin scales.Due to the sparseness of discharge measurements and the variability between catchments in the pan-arctic drainage basin, hydrologic modeling must play a strong role in estimations of the spatial and temporal (seasonal and interannual) variability of land surface hydrologic states and fluxes.We report a 20-year (1979-98) run of the Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) macroscale hydrologic model, over the pan-arctic land domain.
