about the temperature of cooling water released into the rivers from which it is drawn, DCOs could be used in planning operations of such plants and in management of effluent water temperatures. b. Urban water With regard to urban water systems, workshop participants described how DCOs could be used in water management and planning, land-use planning, budgeting, and public education. However, it was also reported that, within a DCO, monthly and seasonal climate predictions are also needed for

spill. Further, since 2001, most farmers interviewed have experimented with one or more drought adaptation strategy, including transitioning from flood irrigation to sprinklers, laser-leveling fields, monitoring irrigation rates, using drought-tolerant crops, participating in land idling programs, attending informational meetings on water use and availability, and using climate and climate-related information in an effort to anticipate allocation and curtailment. b.

research results, and sharing the costs and responsibilities for monitoring efforts. Furthermore, climate concerns were frequently expressed in terms of how climate interacts with (or might interact in the future, under climate change) other stressors, processes, and conditions to produce adverse impacts (e.g., population growth, development, and land use change). Accordingly, efforts to collect and interpret data on the hydrological impacts of climate variability and change need to include additional

al. 2014 ). Although end user and expert engagement has been conducted at national and regional scales, there is a need for targeted engagement at finer scales to address the needs of local end users. Previous research shows that much of science is not used, or usable, by resource managers and decision-makers ( Sarewitz and Pielke 2007 ). There are a variety of reasons for this, including institutional expectations that vary between research entities and policy makers or land managers, but one of

catastrophic ( FAA 2008 ). 1) Aircraft performance impacts—fixed wing For fixed wing, high DA affects the ability of an aircraft to land and/or take off within a very short distance. This is an important impact to factor into military mission planning for operations in locations with limited resources and harsh flying conditions. Aircraft performance impacts due to increased DA fall mainly into the following categories: decreased maximum takeoff weight and increased takeoff and landing distance ( National

Beaver and Grayling at 92 kg (120 177 kg total community harvest). Unlike Beaver and Grayling, Tok is located along the road network. b. Remote sensing data Satellite imagery from Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS), Thematic Mapper (TM), Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+), and Operational Land Imager (OLI) sensors were acquired from the United States Geological Survey (USGS; USGS 2017 ). We used scenes during the shoulder seasons from each of the three study areas from 1972 to 2016. The full

season after they marry, women receive peanut seeds from their husbands as a form of startup capital. From that point forward, women are responsible for maintaining or increasing their stock of seeds. Instead of granting them access to land outright, men often choose to rent fields for their wives to use, allowing for season-to-season changes in field size depending on how much seed the women are able to acquire (interview 28). Men also give their wives portions of the same plot of land, which allows

FAR is a relativized value. Its use would eliminate variations related to the raw number of thunderstorm warnings. The actual number of thunderstorms experienced by an area may be important to how forecasters are conditioned to issue warnings. For example, rather than equate St. Louis, Missouri, with south Florida because they have the same FAR, we compared verified and unverified counts directly. 2) Independent variables The 2006 National Land Cover Dataset is derived from imagery captured by the
