Research opportunities: retrospective climate impact assessment case study: settlement and farming on the arid Great Plains, 1870-1940 (America's seventy-year mistake)

Workshop on Environmental and Societal Consequences of a Possible CO2 Induced Climate Change Carbon Dioxide Effects Research and Assessment Program CONF 7904143: 334-347



Related to periods of sufficient rainfall or extreme drought, the arid western grasslands of America were repeatedly populated and depopulated between 1870 and 1940. Lack of climate information, and misinterpretation of existing information, led to a long-term misconception of the region. Gradually the permanent aridity of the region was acknowledged, and appropriate farming techniques developed.
