The successful candidate will undertake the following activities: (1) use satellite derived water surface temperatures to characterize the thermal behavior of the 50 largest inland water bodies in the world and 100 largest US water bodies for the last three decades; (2) relate changes in the thermal behavior of the water bodies to global and regional climate change as indicated by surface air temperature data; (3) identify changes in the secondary characteristics of the thermal behavior of inland water bodies that result from climate change as a possible predictors of future change, e.g., timing of freeze-thaw; (4) compare the regional trends in surface temperature climate derived from these observations to those depicted in the 20th Century IPCC climate simulations.
