Hydroclimate Information

A major task of the International Upper Great Lakes Study was to improve understanding of hydroclimatic conditions in the upper Great Lakes system, focusing on the possible impacts of climate variability and climate change on future water levels. Numerous studies were conducted to examine how hydroclimatic processes affect Great Lakes water supplies and water levels. The primary focus was on the possible impacts of climate variability and climate change on future water levels, and how to address uncertainty in future hydroclimate scenarios in terms of the analyses and decision making processes conducted. This required developing a better understanding of the water balance of the Great Lakes, assessing the reliability of historical recorded and estimated data, and increasing understanding of potential future water supply conditions through the use of paleo-information, stochastic analysis, and climate modelling.
