This article discusses the past episodes of climate change and weather projections in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE). Topics covered include evidences and technological innovations showing the shift in the Earth's climate patterns, and the use of the Parameter-elevation Relationships on Independent Slopes Model and Topography Weather to characterize the changes in the weather in the GYE as a result of the climate change.

    An optimal projection for improving the skill of dynamical model forecasts is proposed. The proposed method uses statistical optimization techniques to identify the most skillful or most predictable patterns, and then projects forecasts onto these patterns. Applying the method to seasonal mean...
