      Lake Ontario levels remain near a record high for early November raising the possibility of more spring flooding and regulators don't have many options As the story unfolds, start here.   Nearly 8 inches of rain has fallen in the Lake Ontario basin since April 1, about double the normal amount, according to the agency's statistics. "The precipitation has impacted Lake Ontario .

    Due to recent record high lake levels and to climate change issues, there is renewed interest in lake level trends and in factors affecting high water levels. Impacts on Great Lakes water supply components and basin storages of water and heat must be understood before lake level impacts can be assessed. Much of the data in these reports and graphs is from gauges operated by: Meteorological Service of Canada (Environment Canada), Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, United States Geological Survey and US Army Corps of Engineers. Some of the data is provided by H2O Power LP, Boise Cascade, Manitoba Hydro and Ontario Power Generation.

Due in part to its high water surface to land area ratio, over one‐third of the Lake Superior basin water budget is derived from precipitation falling directly on the lake surface. For most of the Great Lakes (including Lake Superior), historical precipitation.

LAKE ONTARIO BASIN: OVERLAND PRECIPITATION, David C. Norton 1. INTRODUCTION The need for accurate overland precipitation data was recognized early in the International Field Year for the Great Lakes (IFYGL) planning for use in terrestrial water balance studies. These studies.

This page shows trends in precipitation, evaporation, and runoff from to for Lakes Superior, Michigan-Huron, Erie, and Ontario.

There are four sections, one for each lake, that provide a table summarizing monthly and annual trends, a monthly graphic that displays values of precipitation, evaporation, and runoff by month from toand an annual graphic that shows the. Lake Ontario Basin, overland precipitation, (Ann Arbor: Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, Environmental Research Laboratories, ), by David C.

Norton and Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (page images at HathiTrust; US access only). This map of the Lake Ontario drainage basin, which includes the St. Lawrence River drainage basin, shows a small inset showing the position of Lake Ontario relative to the other Great Lakes - it is the most eastern lake.

overland precipitation The map, whose scale is in hundreds of kilometres and is oriented in the north direction, shows the Lake Ontario drainage. Precipitation estimates over Lake Ontario and its drainage basin were made for a I-year period, based on data from three weather radars and precipitation stations.

Every point on the lake was within km of a radar, pro ducing excellent coverage. (a) Average monthly over‐land (solid) and over‐lake (dashed) precipitation estimates from the Thiessen polygon procedure (blue) and RegCM4 simulation (red) from – over the Lake Superior basin.

Temporal correlations between the two monthly over‐land and over‐lake precipitation datasets are andrespectively. The Great Lakes or the Great Lakes of North America, are a series of interconnected freshwater lakes in the upper mid-east region of North America, that connect to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence general, they are on or near the Canada–United States are lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario.

Over the past decade, research projects initiated by Coordinating Committee members and colleagues have focused on adapting regional climate models to the Great Lakes basin to improve estimates of over-lake precipitation (Watkins et al.

; Holman et al. ) and on installing new eddy flux towers on offshore lighthouses to improve estimates. Annual overland precipitation increases by +63 mm in RCM-CNRM and +39 mm in RCM-MIROC5 by the mid-twenty-first century and by + mm in RCM-CNRM and by +92 mm in RCM-MIROC5 by the late twenty-first century.

Overland precipitation is generally projected to increase during most months, particularly February–May, but decrease in June–July.

So far this month, the Great Lakes Basin as a whole has accumulated % of its historical average rainfall. The majority of that precipitation occurred in the southeastern regions over Lakes Huron, Erie and Ontario.

Lake Superior and Michigan have been on the drier side. Rising Lake Ontario basin outlet sills, a consequence of differential isostatic rebound, severed the connection with Champlain Sea and, in combination with the switch of inflowing Lake Algonquin drainage northward to Ottawa River valley via outlets near North Bay and an early Holocene dry climate with enhanced evaporation, forced Lake Ontario.

LAKE BASIN BATHYMETRY. New bathymetry has revealed the presence of a small basin between the Mississauga and Rochester Basins and we have given it the new name, Genesee Basin.

The four axial basins, separated by three ridges, occupying the floor of Lake Ontario are from west to east the Niagara, Mississauga, Genesee, and Rochester Basins.

Used in by Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo to describe a Pacific Coast Range (Santa Cruz Mountains), the term "sierra nevada" was a general identification of less familiar ranges toward the interior. InPedro Font's map applied the name to the range currently known as the Sierra Nevada. The literal translation is "snowy mountains", from sierra "a range of mountains", s, from Spanish.
