This project examined localized precipitation events, which occurred in the Colorado Basin area, to determine if dams and agriculture have increased the average number of precipitation events by an increase in evapotranspiration. It appears using graphical analysis of localized precipitation data that the average precipitation events have increased. This project also examined the possible effect increased precipitation events might have on cryptobiotic soil crusts in nearby areas.
