Dynamic Earth Systems

Dynamic Earth Systems

Researchers gather and analyze data to forecast change in temperature, precipitation, stream flow and erosion, and to predict the consequences of these changes for Hoosiers.

The working group’s first project is to create and implement the Hoosier Environmental Forecast Matrix, a tool to predict rainfall, flooding and water supply and their effects on Indiana’s ecosystems.

Some of the other Dynamic Earth Systems projects include Climate Modeling, Rivers and Landscape Modeling, Biome and Species Modeling, and Hydrology Modeling and Arsenic.
