Abstract

A regional climate model (RCM) developed for the Hanford Site, Washington illustrates a potentially useful method for assessing eolian responses to regional climate change. The RCM is based on long-term relations between fundamental climatic variables of precipitation, temperature, and wind speed. Modelled data are integrated into eolian-climatic scenarios through maps of eolian susceptibility, plots of sand dune mobility, and calculated trends of unvegetated dune sand volumes. Results demonstrate the sensitivity of eolian-climatic interactions to small changes in precipitation
