Aspen Futures: Assessing future precipitation projections in Western Colorado to guide stakeholder engagement and resiliency planning for the City of Aspen, Students: James Arnott and Zifan Yang, Sponsor [Aspen Global Change Institute]]

The Aspen Global Change Institute in partnership with the University of Michigan will examine climate model projections of precipitation in the Aspen region and prepare a short white paper intended to clarify and supplement existing subregional, statewide, and regional studies on this topic. The two primary goals of this analysis are to better characterize the confidence (and uncertainty) in recent projections of precipitation for Western Colorado and to provide a more detailed examination of potential future precipitation regimes, such as alterations to timing of precipitation patterns and extremes.
