Research Project: Temporal Trends in Climate in the Great Plains

Location: Grassland, Soil and Water Research Laboratory

Project Number: 3098-11220-006-14
Project Type: General Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 15, 2014
End Date: Nov 30, 2015

Objective:
Summarize climate trends from 1980 to present (precipitation and temperature variability, seasonal patterns, etc.) using data for weather stations in the Great Plains of the U.S.

Approach:
Assemble climate (precipitation, temperature, etc.) data from 1980 to present for weather stations deemed to have the most reliable data. Summarize climate trends (variability, seasonal patterns, etc.) in station data for use in comparing recent and historical climate and relationships of climatic patterns to measured trends in remotely-sensed estimates of plant productivity.
