Data Output - Product or Deliverables
1Hydrologic regime data
Deliverable TypeDatasets / Database
DescriptionDigital data and hard copy maps of the Basin Characterization Model (270m) calibrated for the southern California region to current pre-fire and post-fire conditions and run for future climate conditions.
FormatAscii raster files.
Access and SharingClimate Commons
Archive OrganizationsCommons, maybe Data Basin.

2Management workflow and visualization tool
Deliverable TypeApplications and Tools
DescriptionGeoweb modules and visualization tools to help inform management decision making. The tool will allow exploration of hydrologic regime data under current pre- and post-fire conditions and future climates and integrate data on other ecoystem services in the Santa Clara River watershed and adjacent USFS lands.
FormatStill to be decided.

Not Data - non-data Products
1Remote sensing analysis of post fire vegetation recovery
Deliverable TypeMethodology / Protocol
DescriptionWritten document to describe methods, analyses, and findings relating to the use of remote sensing indices from Landsat TM data to estimate vegetation recovery post fire.
Archive OrganizationsClimate Commons website

2Workshop
Deliverable TypeTraining / Outreach / Workshop
DescriptionA one day workshop to discuss management workflow outputs and conceptualize visualization output tools. There may be another workshop later to show how it works.

3Measuring impacts of fire on hydrologic regimes
Deliverable TypePublication
DescriptionMethods and results assessing the impacts of fire on hydrologic regimes in the Santa Clara River Watershed and how water recharge and runoff recover with post fire vegetation recovery. A technical paper in a peer-reviewed journal as well as a less technical document for natural resource managers.
Archive OrganizationsPeer reviewed literature and guidance document posted on LCC California Climate Commons website
ContactEmma Underwood

4Analysis of change in hydrological regimes under future climates
Deliverable TypePublication
DescriptionManuscript that describes hydrologic regimes in Mediterranean Climate regions of southern California and predicted change under future climates and interacting pressures associated with fire in the landscape.
Archive OrganizationsPeer reviewed literature, cataloged in the Climate Commons

5Webinar: Assessing the impacts of future climates and fire on hydrologic regimes in southern California
Deliverable TypePresentation
DescriptionWebinar will explain the project in general, what will be done, and to get feedback from stakeholders about what will be most useful to them.
