Abstract:

CLIMATE-SOIL MODELS WILL BE INTEGRATED WITH REGIONAL CLIMATEAND SOIL DATA TO DEVELOP PRACTICAL TECHNIQUES FOR EVALUATIONOF SOIL AND WATER RESOURCES IN AGRICULTURE, FORESTRY, AND LAND USE MANAGEMENT. THE GOAL OF THE PHASE I AND PHASE II RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP AN INTEGRATED MICROCOMPUTER BASED TECHNOLOGY FOR ASSESSMENT OF IMPACTS OF CLIMATE VARIATION ONSOIL WATER RESOURCES. SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF CLIMATE AND SOIL DATA WILL BE QUANTIFIED USING ROUTINE METEOROLOGICAL DATA AND SOIL MAPS. ALL TECHNIQUES WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR MICROCOMPUTER APPLICATIONS AND FOR USE IN RESOURCE AND LAND USE PLANNING. A DEMONSTRATION OF THE FEASIBILITY OF THE DEVELOPED TECHNIQUES WILL BE AN APPLICATION OF THE INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGY TO ASSESSMENT OF TRANSPORT OF COMMERCIALLY APPLIED CHEMICALS TO AN UNCONFINED AQUIFER. THE TECHNOLOGY WILL BE APPLIED TO A SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION OF SOILS IN NORTHEASTERN UNITED STATES. THIS APPLICATION OF CLIMATE-SOIL MODELS TO WATER RESOURCE ASSESSMENT WILL INVOLVE LONG-TERM CLIMATE DATA AND DISTRIBUTIONS OF SOIL PHYSIOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES. THE RESULT OF PHASE I RESEARCH WILL BE THE DEMONSTRATION OF THE FEASIBILITY OF THE INTEGRATED CLIMATE AND SOIL SYSTEM FOR WATER RESOURCE ASSESSMENT BY LAND USE MANAGERS AND PLANNERS.
