AN ARCHAEOCLIMATE MODEL FOR CODY, WYOMING
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.
