Using Climate Predictions in Great Lakes Hydrologic Forecasts T. E. Croley II1 1Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, Commonwealth Blvd., Ann Arbor, Michigan ABSTRACT The Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory’s (GLERL’s) Advanced. There is a growing need for accurate prediction of water level changes in the Great Lakes for the purposes of managing their water resources (Neff and Nicholas ).The physical processes over a lake basin that contribute to the water level change of that lake include the overlake precipitation (P lake), lake evaporation (E lake), and runoff into the lake from its drainage basin (R).

the lakes because of the greater atmospheric stability imparted at the surface by the relatively cooler summertime water temperatures. Past research has confirmed these theories for portions of several lakes or entire individual lakes. However, seasonal climate effects over the entire Great Lakes basin are still somewhat poorly defined.   Between and , the temperature of the Great Lakes basin increased degrees in annual mean temperature compared to a .

Severe Storms in the Great Lakes; Heat Building in the East and Southwest. A well organized cluster of showers and thunderstorms will move across the Great Lakes today with potential for large hail, significant damaging winds, a few tornadoes, and heavy rain that could cause flash flooding. Isolated storms may also develop across the Plains.   The Great Lakes lose heat by evaporation and by the warming of overlying air when the atmosphere is cool. After water vapor is released into the atmosphere, it condenses and forms precipitation, some of which falls within the Great Lakes basin. The Great Lakes modify the local weather and climate.

Precipitation samples were collected monthly from to at five sites located in the Great Lakes region. Volume weighted mean concentrations of total PBDEs in precipitation ranged from 94 ± 19 ng L−1 at the urban site of Chicago to ± ng L−1 for the.

The Great Lakes—Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario, and Superior—hold 20 percent of the world’s supply of surface fresh water. They provide sustenance, work, and recreation for tens of millions of Americans.

But they are under threat as never before, and. The Great Lakes basin is a relatively young ecosystem having formed during the l years. have been able to determine the manner in which the increase of carbon dioxide emissions will affect the climate in the Great Lakes basin.

Several of these models exist and show that at twice the carbon dioxide level, the climate of the basin. A small network of four sampling stations was established in the Great Lakes basin for the purpose of obtaining a refined estimate of atmospheric loading of trace organic pollutants to the Great Lakes.

A total of 93 rain/snow samples was collected from the network during Precipitation and snowfall are enhanced over and downwind of the lakes during winter by the rapid modification of cold air masses passing over the warm waters of the lakes.

The transfer of heat and moisture to cold and dry polar air flowing over the lakes results in heavy snowfall on the lee side of the lakes in areas referred to as snowbelts. Differences between simulations with and without the lakes represented indicate that the lakes accounted for approximately 25% of the precipitation over the basin during the day period simulated.

Over localized areas, identified as the major snowbelts downwind from the lakes, lake effects were responsible for 50%–70% of the precipitation. Annual precipitation has increased in the Great Lakes region by percent sinceaccording to climate research from Michigan State University and the University of Michigan.

Lake-effect precipitation (primarily snow) occurs over northern Utah several times per year (Steenburgh et al. ; Alcott et al. ) and contributes to the GSL water budget through direct precipitation on the lake and the buildup of a mountain snowpack that drives much of the surface-water runoff within the GSL basin, which serves as the primary water resource for people in Salt.
