Impact of Reservoirs on Contemporary and Future Hydrology of the Northeastern United States

Construction of dams and the resulting water impoundments are one of the most common engineering procedures implemented on river systems. One major problem in dams’ impact studies is the lack of reliable methods for simulating reservoir operation. We have used Artificial Neural Networks to parameterize actual dam operations and developed a General Reservoir Operation Scheme … More Impact of Reservoirs on Contemporary and Future Hydrology of the Northeastern United States

Spring plant phenology and false springs in the conterminous US during the 21st century

Highlights Spring onset will occur earlier throughout the conterminous US by the year 2100. Projections of earlier spring onset indicate that recent historical trends may continue, but not everywhere. The averaging of many models canceled out the effects of the simulated internal variability and emphasized the role of greenhouse-forced climate change. Future changes in false … More Spring plant phenology and false springs in the conterminous US during the 21st century
