Project Description

We are investigating the CMIP3 and CMIP5 global climate models for the information they provide about Great Lakes climate change.  Our assessment includes both an evaluation of the quality of information they provide and a description of the climate changes they predict.  As part of this work we describe the new representative concentration pathways (RCPs) that are used in the CMIP5 to define possible futures based on radiative forcing amounts.
