Abstract

Trends in meteorological and ecological variables were calculated across the state of Wisconsin from 1950 to 2006 to quantify recent patterns of climate change. This paper specifically reports changes in annual and seasonal temperatures and precipitation; trends in extreme temperature and occurrences, shifts in the growing season length, growing degree days, heating degree days, and cooling degree days; the occurrence of extreme precipitation events; and changes in the position of the so-called ecological "Tension Zone" (Curtis,1959)
