AdaptWest Ecoregion Climate Explorer


AdaptWest has case studies and a tool for visualizing current and projected future climate data for North American ecoregions.

The climate data displayed are derived from the ClimateNA dataset, which was created by Diana Stralberg, Xianli Wang, and Andreas Hamann. Current (historic) data are based on the Parameter Regression of Independent Slopes Model (PRISM) interpolation method. Projected future climate is additionally based on the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 3 (CMIP3) database corresponding to the 4th IPCC Assessment Report, for emission scenario A2.
