报告题目2：Climate change impacts on stream temperature in regulated river systems: A case study in Southeastern United States
Yifan Cheng is currently a 4th year PhD student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Washington, Seattle. He received his bachelor’s degree in Hydraulic Engineering in 2015 from Tsinghua University. He currently works on an interdisciplinary project funded by Natural Science Foundation, Water and Energy Infrastructure in the Southeast-Approaches to Resilient Interdependent Systems under Climate Change. He works on evaluating the resilience of regulated river system on water availability and stream temperature under climate change.
Brief introduction: Stream temperature will potentially increase under climate change, which will put great threats to power sectors. Deep reservoirs are thermally stratified during warm seasons, with a warmer top epilimnion and a colder bottom hypolimnion. To maximize hydro power production, water tends to be released from bottom layer, having a cold impact on downstream river temperatures. Most macroscale stream temperature models did not consider thermal stratification because it’s computationally intensive. We developed a two-layer thermal stratification module and fully coupled it into a distributed stream temperature model to capture the impacts of thermal stratification. In this talk, I will introduce a physically based model framework to simulate regulated stream temperature considering thermal stratification. I will also present projected climate impacts on stream temperature and its uncertainties based on an ensemble model runs of 40 future scenarios.
