AdaptWest- A Climate Adaptation Conservation Planning Atlas for Western North America

AdaptWest is a spatial database and synthesis of methods for conservation planning aimed at enhancing resilience and adaptation potential of natural systems under climate change.

The four main database components in development are:
Physical-habitat-based metrics
Climate-data-based metrics
Species-model-based metrics
Integrated priority area maps

AdaptWest's Ecoregion Climate Data Explorer provides a visualization tool to explore and summarize current and projected future climate data for North American ecoregions. Available metrics include seasonal and annual means, extremes, growing and chilling degree days, snow fall, drought indices, and more.
