The 2014 Basin Characterization Model Downscaled Climate and Hydrology Dataset

The 2014 BCM incorporates future climate scenarios including many from the newer CMIP-5 climate projections, as well as updated methodology. This article introduces the new dataset and leads to ways to access it.

We had a webinar on September 17, 2014 with scientific background from the Flints and information about access it on the Climate Commons. A recording is available through that link.
