Development of macrophysical climate models was instrumental in creating

archaeoclimatic models of past climates for specific locations (Bryson 1998). Modeled mean

temperature and precipitation "by month for each two centuries back to 14,000 years BP"

(Bryson and Bryson n.d.:1) can be created. In addition, these parameters may be used to

generate a "water budget", comparing precipitation and potential evapotranspiration, wind

speed and direction, storm intensity and frequency, snowfall, and other climatic factors.

A model specifically for Cody, Wyoming was created that models temperature,

precipitation, precipitation intensity, water balance, snowfall, and wind.
