Stormwater, Flooding and Decision-Making in the Great Lakes Region

The project team: 1) tested the effectiveness of GHCN-Daily (Global Historical Climate Network) data in quantifying regional sensitivity to the frequency of ash ooding following heavy precipitation, and 2) tested the effectiveness of GHCN-Daily data in quantifying potential increases in the capacity of separate sewer systems.

Project Accomplishments: 

Understanding of how GHCN-Daily data can be used to identify past and future vulnerabilities will help decision makers plan for changing weather patterns in the region.
