Improve understanding of hydroclimatic processes & impacts



Details
Analysis of climate patterns and their hydrologic responses established a new standard in our understanding of how hydroclimatic processes affect the Great Lakes, and should be used as a starting point for future water level planning and related research. However, assessing the uncertain impacts of climate variability and change on the upper Great Lakes will continue to be a challenge. Considerable work remains to improve our understanding of these impacts and their implications for regulation, including a number of important priorities, notably: strengthened climate change modelling building off of the promising preliminary results obtained as part of the IUGLS; and enhanced hydroclimatic data collection, including support and expansion of key programs that were initiated during the IUGLS, such as evaporation gauges on the Great Lakes and International Gauging Stations for measuring connecting channel flows.
