Alexis Rain !!BETTER!!
Sunday: Rain before 9 a.m., then rain likely and possibly a thunderstorm between 9 a.m. and noon, then a chance of rain and thunderstorms after noon. Areas of fog. High near 59. East wind 5 to 7 mph becoming calm. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Welcome back readers! This past week the water continued to drop and we had to hike out toward the middle of the marsh to find enough water for our traps. Thursday and Friday we got some of the rain we had been asking for and bundled up accordingly. We were reminded to keep our raincoat [...]
Dear Beloved readers: This week has certainly been an interesting seven days in the field. With the low water levels and lack of rainfall, the turtles have decided to stay cozied up in the marsh making turtle catching even more difficult. However, on Tuesday, Maura and Alexis took on the DANGEROUS task of processing eight [...]
Nov. 5, 2005Final Stats Quotes NotesSEATTLE (AP) - Yvenson Bernard ran for 122 yards on 35 carries and Alexis Serna kicked six field goals in windy and rainy conditions, as Oregon State slogged past Washington 18-10 on Saturday night.
clearly remember shivering while rapidly walking across the stage at graduation last May amidst relentless rain, bolts of lightning, and cracks of thunder. As I grasped my hard-earned diploma and smiled genuinely for the camera, I felt prepared to leave for Nicaragua as a Peace Corps volunteer in a few months. Much like my stormy graduation ceremony, my experience as a Peace Corps volunteer in Nicaragua has presented some challenges and is not exactly as I expected, but nonetheless, it has been interesting, and at the end of the day, I feel grateful to be here.
In response to increased greenhouse gases and global temperatures, changes to the hydrologic cycle are projected to occur and new precipitation characteristics are expected to emerge. The study of these characteristics is facilitated by common indices to measure precipitation and temperature developed by the Expert Team on Climate Change Detection and Indices (ETCCDI). These indices can be used to describe the likely consequences of climate change such as increased daily precipitation intensity (SDII) and heavier rainfall events (R95p). This study calculates a subset of these indices from observed and modelled precipitation data in Portland, Oregon. Five rainfall gages from a high resolution rain gage network and projections from three downscaled global climate models including CanESM2, CESM1, CNRM-CM5 are used to calculate precipitation indices. Mann-Kendall's tau is used to detect monotonic trends in indices. The observational record is compared with models for the historic period (1977-2005) and these past trends are compared with projected future trends (2006-2100). The influence of study unit on trend detection is analyzed by computing trends at the annual and monthly scale. Study unit is shown to be important for trend detection. When the annual study unit is used, projected future trends towards increased precipitation intensity and event volumes are not observed in the historic data. However, when analyzed with a monthly study unit, trends towards increased precipitation intensity and event volumes are observed in the historic data. These trends are shown to be important for Portland area flooding, as precipitation indices are shown to significantly correlate with 40 maximum peak flow events that occurred during the period of study. 041b061a72
