The choice of representative concentration pathways (RCPs) and shared socioeconomic pathways (SSPs) are critical to using climate projections to make decisions, but where these scenarios come from and what they mean is complex but necessary to understand. The Great Lakes RISA guide is geared toward practitioners already using or wanting to use future climate information in their work, but who are not familiar with the underlying assumptions and choices surrounding climate data.
After the Pacific Northwest RISA published a study suggesting increased flooding magnitudes in the future for the region, authors Laura Queen, Bart Nijssen, and Phil Mote presented their findings and facilitated a discussion about the research in a webinar.
The webinar series reached over 330 stakeholders and shared stakeholder-requested information about snowpack monitoring data, tools, and their applications, highlighting efforts by partners like NOAA Colorado River Basin Forecast Center.
Groundwater is Tutila’s primary source of drinking water and climate change has the potential to significantly impact water resource availability.
The assessment focuses on conditions and sector impacts as a resource for future management of drought and other climate extremes.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather.
