      Southern Great Plains and Southwestern U.S. (Fig. 2) and that the rainfall will be near normal ( chance of being ‘normal’ (Fig. 3). This is useful information for crop management strategic planning (crop species selection, crop hybrid selection, irrigation planning, and even commodity hedging for crop sales or the futures market). More rainfall occurs in summer than in winter, except in some of the northwestern parts of the Great Plains. A distinctive winter phenomenon of the western Great Plains is the chinook, a warm dry wind that blows down the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains and can raise temperatures by as much as 30 to 40 °F (17 to 22 °C) in a short period.

To test 5 our hypothesis, we first examine station observations of warm season precipitation over and.

        These data will be analyzed and used, along with model applications, to determine the impacts of irrigation on precipitation in the Great Plains. The team will use NCAR's supercomputing facility, in addition to computational facilities at WKU, UAH and UNL, for the modeling.   Free Online Library: Effect of irrigation and preplant nitrogen fertilizer source on maize in the southern great plains.(Research Article) by "International Journal of Agronomy"; Agricultural industry Ammonium compounds Ammonium paratungstate Ammonium salts Corn Nitrogen fertilizers Sulfates Urea Urea as fertilizer Water use.

The Effects of Great Plains Irrigation on the Surface Energy Balance, Regional Circulation, and Precipitation by David B. Huber, David B. Mechem * and Nathaniel A. Brunsell Atmospheric Science Program, Department of Geography, University of Kansas, Cited by:   The estimated impact of irrigation is to decrease the water table by an average of feet per year, whereas rainfall recharges the level by an average of feet per year.

Relative to the past several decades, if groundwater use is unconstrained, groundwater depletion would increase 50% in a scenario where precipitation falls by 25% and Cited by: 1.

Irrigation provides a much needed source of water in regions of low precipitation such as the western Great Plains. However, adding water to a region that would otherwise see little natural precipitation has ramifications for the partitioning of radiative and turbulent fluxes, the development of the planetary boundary layer, and the transport.

INFLUENCE OF IRRIGATION ON PRECIPITATION phenomenal growth of irrigation in the Great Plains of North America (semi-arid climate) has had an appreciable effect on the climate of the region. The average annual rainfall of this region is cm with percent occurring in the warm season (AprilSeptember).

Irrigation provides a much needed source of water in regions of low precipitation such as the western Great Plains. However, adding water to a region that would otherwise see little natural precipitation has ramifications for the partitioning of radiative and turbulent fluxes, the development of the planetary boundary layer, and the transport of water vapor from the regions of irrigation.

The synoptic and subsynoptic atmospheric processes that accompany statistically determined periods of irrigation-induced rainfall increases during the warm season in the Texas Panhandle are examined.

Major results are as tion appears to increase precipitation only when the synoptic condition provides low-level convergence and uplift, such that the additional moisture produced by. There is also observational evidence that the Great Plains irrigation contributes to enhanced summer rainfall over the Midwest during last century (Alter et al.

But because of insufficient or inaccurate irrigated area information and difficulties in addressing the spatial variations in real-world irrigation practices, to date, most. Table 2. Estimated average net effects of changes in irrigation, precipitation and time above 36℃ (DD36) on the net annual change in groundwater levels (in feet) in the HPA.

Cause Estimated net effect (in feet per year) Irrigation: 10% increase in application rate 10% increase in area irrigated Precipitation - one inch less Using bias‐corrected Nexrad precipitation estimates and spatial statistics of rainfall intensity, we examine the influence of irrigation on summer precipitation in the Texas High Plains.

In this re. Climate observations have also been widely used to study the effect of irrigation on temperature or rainfall (Fowler and Helvey ; Barnston and Schickedanz ; Mahmood et al.).These studies have typically relied on pairwise comparisons of weather or climate trends between irrigated and nonirrigated locations.

A study on the Texas High Plains noted a precipitation increase ranging from % almost one hundred kilometers away from the irrigation site (Moore and Rojstaczer, ). In addition to.

While the Ogallala Aquifer is the largest aquifer in the United States, underlyingkm 2 of the western side of the Great Plains, stretching from South Dakota to Texas, groundwater withdrawals in Texas, primarily due to irrigation, greatly exceed recharge, which has been estimated to range from – mm yr −1 across the High.

But because of insufficient or inaccurate irrigated area information and difficulties in addressing the spatial variations in real-world irrigation practices, to date, most modeling attempts.

precipitation estimates and spatial statistics of rainfall intensity, we examine the influence of irrigation on summer precipitation in the Texas High Plains. In this region, human alteration of the surface water and energy balance has been extreme.

Irrigation enhances precipitation downwind, yielding storms of greater duration, length, and. The purpose of this study is to quantitatively evaluate climate change impacts on irrigation demands and regional water resources in the Republican River basin, an agricultural basin overlying the High Plains aquifer in the American Great Plains, where water management for.

The Great Plains has a distinct east-west gradient in average precipitation, with eastern Texas and Oklahoma experiencing more than 50 inches per year, while some of Montana, Wyoming, and western Texas receive less than 15 inches per year.

Bengaluru: Intensive irrigation is contributing to extreme moist heat stress in the Indo-Gangetic plain, extending all the way up to Pakistan and Afghanistan, a new study has found.

According to researchers from IIT Gandhinagar, high humidity from intensive irrigation, combined with high temperatures induced by human activity worsens moist heat stress, despite decreasing temperatures .
