What We Do
Data pertaining to the current and future state of our climate come not only from many fields of research, but also in many different scales and formats. As expressed to us from various resource managers, etc., this motley collection creates difficulty for those who need to apply these data in a decision-making context. Climate Analytics Group makes climate projection data applicable and accessible at local and regional scales, providing analysis, interpretation, and integration as needed.
