Modeling and Analyzing Flow History of the Winooski River

We are using USGS flow records and National Weather Service precipitation data to understand how the inputs and outputs of water in the Winooski River basin have changed over the past century. This data analysis provides the datasets for collaborators in Civil and Environmental Engineering to build models that have the potential to reproduce past flows and thus predict future flows under changing climate and land-use conditions. We are also doing land-use analysis using historic and ground-level aerial photographs.
