Apr 2024: NC CASC Webinar

NC CASC APR 2024 Webinar


North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center Webinar

In April 2024, Katherine Hegewisch, Imtiaz Rangwala and John Guinotte presented a webinar entitled 'ClimateToolbox.Org: A Discussion of Climate Applications to Support Quantitative Climate Change Impact Assessment and Scenario Planning'. 

 Recent years have seen great advances in the availability of downscaled climate data and tools to inform climate change impact or vulnerability assessments and climate adaptation planning. This presentation will discuss various tools available through https://ClimateToolbox.ORG to access downscaled future climate projections relevant for ecological applications, examine future climate uncertainty and develop quantitative information to inform scenario planning activities. We will specifically discuss the Future Climate Scenarios tool and an updated version of the Future Climate Scatter tool, which are the latest additions/improvements to the toolbox motivated by the ongoing collaboration between North Central CASC and US Fish & Wildlife Service to inform Species Status Assessments. These tools and the underlying climate and hydrological projections data can collectively support a wide array of applications for developing quantitative information to support climate adaptation and scenario planning.
