Prairie wetlands are intricately linked with climate and hydrology. Future climate change, such as warmer conditions, changes in precipitation amount and intermittency, may both benefit and threaten the wetlands over the Canadian Prairies. During the same time, large-scale land use changes have been occurring such as the conversion of natural wetlands to agriculture lands. Understanding the long temporal scales over which land use and climate changes occur, and their impact on wetlands distribution, require sophisticated climate modeling tools that contain a realistic representation of not only climate and weather, land-atmosphere interaction, hydrology, but also wetlands. This is a great challenge to our ability to understand the environmental impacts on/of changing wetlands. TO BE CONT’D
