The Influence of Climatic and Land Use Changes on Extreme Streamflows in the U.S.

Science Center Objects

Hydrologic droughts and floods can have severe impacts on river infrastructure, water supply, and ecosystem functioning.

We are exploring trends over time in the largest floods and most severe hydrologic droughts in the United States in the last century. Analyzing these events requires nontraditional types of analyses. We will also explore the reasons behind these extreme events.
