Data Output - Product or Deliverables
1Spatially-explicit meadow vulnerability assessment
Deliverable TypeDatasets / Database
DescriptionIntegration of meadow climate sensitivity analysis results, geomorphic attribute datasets, and climate change projections into spatially-explicit vulnerability assessment. End users: Amador Calavaras Consensus Group, Federal, state, local and tribal managers and stakeholders in Sierra Nevada ecoregion
Archive OrganizationsCA Climate Commons, Databasin

2Preliminary customized CLIM -Engine tool for meadow vegetation monitoring
Deliverable TypeApplications and Tools
DescriptionCSP, DRI, USFS, USGS, and stakeholders will start the collaborative customization and testing within the Google Earth Engine framework for monitoring vegetation, drought, and and climate for areas of interest. Efforts will focus on software development, engagement with the USFS and stakeholders to allow for collaborative 'two-way' tool development and CLIM Engine enhancement based on stakeholder engagement and feedback. To be delivered In-person, product will be pilot tested by stakeholders. End-users: USFS, Amador Calavaras Consensus Group
Exclusive Use Embargonone
Restrictionsnone
Archive OrganizationsDRI, part of SWCSC SCENIC system

3Final CLIM-Engine tool for meadow vegetation monitoring
Deliverable TypeApplications and Tools
DescriptionScaling up the tested CLIM Engine customization activities in year one to regional scales. CSP and DRI will work with the USFS and stakeholders to identify site-specific challenges not encountered in the test cases and to develop strategies to address such issues. Initial data products will be developed for review by USFS and collaborators at selected test areas where accurate reference datasets exist.This will result in a dynamic, near real-time vegetation and climate monitoring interface in a friendly and familiar Google Earth environment that allows users to view and analyze different types of vegetation indices in conjunction with climate information in space and time through maps and time series tools. To be delivered In person, tool will be linked on the CA Climate Commons. End-users: Federal, state, local and tribal managers and stakeholders in Sierra Nevada ecoregion

Not Data - non-data Products
1Preliminary decision framework for climate-smart selection of meadows for restoration in the Sierra Nevada
Deliverable TypeUser Manual / Guidance Document
DescriptionSynthesis of meadow climate sensitivity and vulnerability assessment results into decision framework. To be delivered In-person, product will be pilot tested by stakeholders. End-users: Amador Calavaras Consensus Group

2Revised decision framework for climate- smart selection of meadows for restoration in the Sierra Nevada
Deliverable TypeUser Manual / Guidance Document
DescriptionRevised version of above, incorporating feedback from stakeholders and information from field validation efforts. To be delivered In-person, materials posted on the Climate Commons End-users: Amador Calavaras Consensus Group, Federal, state, local and tribal managers and stakeholders in Sierra Nevada ecoregion

3Peer-reviewed journal article(s) focused on decision framework for selecting meadows for restoration in the Sierra Nevada
Deliverable TypePublication : Article
DescriptionSynthesis of meadow vulnerability assessment and decision framework and applications for prioritizing meadows for restoration. Electronic copies will be sent to CA LCC via email, and provided to Climate Commons for posting. Target audience: Federal, state, local and tribal managers and stakeholders in Sierra Nevada ecoregion, Scientists and academics
