I recently completed a project funded by
NSF (and previously by
the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection) to use regional
climate models to produce scenarios for impact analysis for New Jersey and to
study the impacts of climate change on the hydrology of the United States.
This includes changes in water table and streamflow, as well as soil moisture.
We used RAMS-Hydro, a
regional climate model developed by Gonzalo Miguez-Macho and Ying Fan
Reinfelder, that explicitly models not only the atmosphere but also water table
and stream flow. It is described and used in
recent papers here.

NSF, we are evaluation the
efficacy and possible consequences of proposals to reduce incoming solar
radiation to counteract global warming by injecting aerosol particle into the
recent papers describe climate model simulations and the benefits,
risks, and costs of stratospheric geoengineering. Visit
