Abstract

We demonstrate connections between decadal and secular global climatic variations, and historical variations in the volume of the Great Salt Lake. The decadal variations correspond to a low‐frequency shifting of storm tracks which influence winter precipitation and explain nearly 18% of the interannual and longer‐term variance in the record of monthly volume change. The secular trend accounts for a more modest ∼1.5% of the variance.
