Research Project: Trends in Observed Daily Summertime Maximum Temperatures in Colorado

Lisa Arvidson was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. She attends Front Range Community College in Fort Collins, Colorado. After graduation, she plans on studying environmental communication or environmental economics at Colorado State University. Lisa has always had a love for the environment and nature, and would like to better it as much as possible. She loves hiking and spending a lot of time with her family.
Her research is with Imtiaz Rangwala at NOAA. Throughout the summer she will be looking at extreme daily maximum temperatures, around Colorado, in order to determine if there is a climate change signal.
To support her research, Lisa refers to the Western Water Assessment report Climate Change in Colorado.
Lisa explains the frequency of summer daily high temperatures from nine monitoring stations located in Colorado.
